VEX Robotics Photography Challenge

Showcase youth using VEX to explore STEM. Compose a photograph that features one or more students working on a robot, testing, planning or celebrating your VEX team’s accomplishments. Use photography to tell the judges something about your own story of involvement on a competition team, in a classroom, or as a hobbyist working with VEX.

Engineers in the Making

Robotics isn't just about programming, controlling and building; one of the less known aspects of VEX Robotics is the Engineering Notebook. It records down what your team does and most importantly what you have learnt from the whole VEX experience.

When you become an enginner 10 or 20 years down the road, you're not going to remember how to stack 7 skyrises within 30 seconds, or build a functioning catapult that can launch balls. But you will definitely still need the skills and knowledge of keeping a Enginnering Notebook.

In this picture I am clinging tightly to our robot because I was worried about dropping it  or about having someone bump into it. I couldn't figure out where I was supposed to be so I was also looking around for my coach.
