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.


presented by the Legacy


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?

A Portrait Of A Young Roboticist


"A Portrait Of A Young Roboticist" is photograph of our teammate Isabelle. When we shoot this photograph Isabelle was so focused on working on the robot that she did not even notice we were taking it.  The frame of the photograph is an old base of an earlier model of our robot. This symbolizes the ever-changing innovation of robots and also the beauty of (wo)man and man-made creations.

We Fell Into The Ring Of Robotics!!


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.

When dabbing fun and gearing down come together


One of the most important things in robotics is having fun and enjoying yourself. This picture was not on purpose, I was trying to take a picture for the engineering notebook of some changes we had just made. I never knew my teammates where dabbing in the background, but after I noticed it and printed the picture, it made everybody laugh. Laughing is a normal everyday thing during our practices.

This picture shows many emotions, that is why we decided to enter this into the online challenge. Nothing is perfect, and having a good time when problem solving is helpful!

Systematic diagnostics


There are times when it is necessary to breakdown your robot into its subsystems to be able to inspect and fix individual aspects of each system instead of trying to do it as a whole.

we’re still each other’s partners in crimes.

How Can We Use Problem Solving in Vex?


I have done Vex for quite some time and when I first started out, it took me a while to realize a simple fact. To be successful in Vex, you need to problem solve! You won't achieve any goals in Vex if you're not willing to solve problems. Sometimes, all you need to do is step back and take a breather before looking at your project again. It can open a world of possibilities that can allow you to see what you're doing wrong and how you can fix that. My photo shows that sometimes in Vex, things don't always go away and that's okay; the main thing is that you try to do...
