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.

Not everything goes the way you want it to

In this photo we were trying to take a picture to put in our engineering notebook because I wanted a picture of our entire team. When we tried to take it I ran over to get in the picture and the robot fell down behind me and it scared everyone. Once we realized what had happened we all started laughing and that’s what my phone took a picture of. I love how it turned out and I’m planning on still using the picture for our engineering journal.

Here you can see Weston, Alex, Isel, and even Mrs. Garrett finding out after over three weeks of work that they did not do most of the website correctly; therefore, they had to basically restart the entire website. This of course made them extremely frustrated, and I decided that this would be the perfect chance to take the perfect picture.

Working Together as One

VEX Robotics has helped in many ways for our academic learning and our social learning, from learning new skills for the future, to communication skills and becoming a great leadership team.

In this photograph of our team, we have tried to capture all the different jobs that make one team. Mainly with the 2 in the bottom left hand corner, talking about coding and problem solving. 

The poster in the background is our school motto “All to All in Faith and Learning” this motto is what we believe helps us work...

Learning beyond Building and Programming

After years of building robots to participate in competitions, our team members hope to find out how the robots really work and finish the designated action. Under the guidance of our instructor, they used a high-speed camera to capture the motion of the robot from the 2018 Turning Point Season. This picture clearly records the students' attention and the curiosity on how the robot and camera works.
