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 photograph with these stunning trophies that our leaders have won, is not a dream for us as a team it’s the reality. Representing that us as a team have the duty to take our school to victory! If the past has done it now we have to do the same thing. They worked hard, stressed, angry & not taking a blink. All of that paid off look at them leading the path of success. Now 1073D we have to do the same thing, it’s all on our hands to do the legacy dreams.
“If not us, who? If not now, when?
-John F. Kennedy
After many years of being a part of Vext IQ roboitics we have found that to be productive builders it is very important to keep all our parts organized. We have several tool boxes with individual compartments that we can arrange in a circle around us for easy access to the parts we need! This allows us to build robots more efficiently with less mess all over the living room! The only challenge we have is how to keep the cat from lying on the pieces.
Henry Ford once said, "If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself." This quote embodies the message our photo conveys; Working together as a team will lead us to our success. Working with each other as teammates creates friendships and puts us on the path to victory. We are proud of what we have accomplished and hope to continue competing in the future.
My favorite part about VEX IQ robotics is that it’s fun! I get to hang out with my friends on my team and learn new skills. I also get to make new friends on other teams at competitions. It's fun designing, building, driving and programming my robot. Competitions are fun too! In this picture I tried to show some of the things that are fun about robotics…a new game every year, building robots, Worlds and hanging out with friends (like Sammy). Vex IQ Robotics is like building a snowman. It’s just FUN!
