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.

Exceptional Mentoring Moments


Exceptional Mentoring Moments at Loyola Blakefield


I started VEX robotics when I was in 6th grade and now I am a junior.  I joined my older brothers’ VEX robotics team and he and I spent years building robots together. Over the years we have attended multiple local events, state championships and traveled twice to Iowa to attend CREATE.  This year it is my turn to be the team leader.  It was a privilege to “pay forward” all the mentoring that I have received.

We had to build  a different robot because the first robot did not work very well. We had to find the best fit for the game. After testing, we see that "Clutch" will be the best robot for the game.
