VEX Photography Online Challenge Sponsored by VEX Robotics
The VEX Photography Online Challenge was introduced in 2015 and received 196 submissions. Since then, this challenge continues to receive the most Online Challenge submissions every season. In this challenge, students submit a photo that best represents what they love about being involved in robotics. The challenge is to upload just one photograph that tells a complete story, focusing on a favorite aspect of VEX IQ Challenge, VRC or VEX U. The chosen photo should convey an emotion, specifically the feeling you experience when you are doing what you love most.
I love being involved in Robotics because of the people I work with everyday and being able to work with them everyday. Everyday when we work I love that we can have fun while we're working no matter what. In the picture we are both working hard and having fun together.
One of the most important things in robotics is having fun and enjoying yourself. This picture was not on purpose, I was trying to take a picture for the engineering notebook of some changes we had just made. I never knew my teammates where dabbing in the background, but after I noticed it and printed the picture, it made everybody laugh. Laughing is a normal everyday thing during our practices.
This picture shows many emotions, that is why we decided to enter this into the online challenge. Nothing is perfect, and having a good time when problem solving is helpful!
