This picture symbolizes teamwork, where every team member worked together. The hands holding the robot show that each of us contributed, and that we wouldn't have the robot if not doing so. Instead of using five fingers, we used hands to symbolize that we are one unit with synergy and are not five different units.

Vex team 1231A photography challenge


This picture represents what I have made for my team. As you can see this robotic piece is the main part to helping our elevation lift be complete.
