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.
This photo I chose was after an introduction I did to a group of visitors in the Mbaracayu Forest Natural Reserve, they were very happy and encouraged us to pursue our dreams of become the best robotics solution makers.
And this is the connection I have with robotics, even though it seems difficult, since I joined the team I learned several things that I didn't know and it also opened my mind to a new world that is robotics and STEM disciplines
This photo was taken right after our team, 750R, and one of our sister teams, 750E, made it to Worlds. The rush of emotion at that moment, after months of hard work, all the meetings, practice, and competitions we had had as a team, the many highs and lows we experienced, it had all been worth it. It had all come to this: our achievements finally paying off. We did something that no team from our school had done in three years. We were smiling, crying, and laughing, knowing that everything we had done had all been worth it.
It is life lesson not a competition
At vex IQ we learn values beside the design and programming
We learn how to work in a team
We learn how to help other
We learn how to mange our time
We learn how the priorities go on
We learn how with the same material we can do more than thing
We learn how to make a plan
We learn Science
We learn Technology
We learn Electronics
We learn Mathematics
As a result those are the reasons to said that the vex not only a competition
Alex is a referee here in the UK, he helps run competitons such as our very own at John Warner. He is able to stay friendly with all of the competitors and still manages to work hard and make sure everything runs smoothly. This photo demonstrates this as Alex had playfully photobombed our champions pictures!
Girl Powered through my team empowering me. My team is all boys aside from me. They include me so much that our name was voted in and we are the Cyber Scruncheeez. The respect me and listened and helped me get this picture by wearing and posing with scrunchie hair bands, I appreciate my team. We are family.
This competition was our team’s last chance to qualify for state. We thought our day had ended minutes prior to this snapshot. We lost in our quarterfinal match. We would go home empty-handed. We decided to stand on the side after our match to hear the next two awards be announced. We won the design award! “Your notebook was amazing,” said the judge. We came together for a group hug, immensely excited, joyful, and proud. Those remarks the judge had made about our team had given us the validation we needed. We were going to state and nationals.
