Use photography to tell a complete story with one photograph, focusing on your favorite aspect of VEX IQ Challenge, VRC or VEX U. Compose a photo that conveys an emotion, specifically the feeling you experience when you are doing what you love most.
Build, Destroy, and Repeat!
These are the fundamentals of robotics. All three of which were exercised during our Robotics night-long Lock-In event! In the photo you can see all our members posing inside the tent, even including the robot!

We are the AquaBots and modern day Rosie the Riveters. During the STEM competition at Worlds, we had to wait outside the judging room. We had time to practice our STEM skit, which was a presentation about Rosie the Riveter and the laws of robotics used on naval ships. We decided to have a little fun and practice our speech in our wagon. My mom says that we were "goofing off", but we really were practicing. We ended up winning the STEM Research Project Award for the Viking division! Extra practice (even in a wagon) really does pay off.
We had so much fun creating a dolphin enrichment toy out of recycled robotics parts. While learning about marine conservation and the durability requirements of dolphin toys, we thought of a good idea to recycle last year's game parts. We presented the dolphin toy to our local marine institute. Apollo the Dolphin loved our new toy and our toy even survived all of his sharp teeth!
One our team members(Matthew) is touching up the robot before our tournament in two weeks. One of our other team mates in the back (Andrew) is not pictured, but is working on the chromebooks seen in frame. He is working on finishing our program for the upcoming tournament. Hard work is being done to meet our deadline in a couple days to be fully operational for competition.
