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.
About the Photo
Over 150 hours of hard work and dedication to complete our robot and engineering notebook culminated into this event, where we were awarded Tournament Champions, the Excellence Award, Design Award, Programming Skills Champion, and Robot Skills Champion.
The Enlightened Luddites (985A) is one of the all-girls teams at Mary Our Queen Robotics. This photo represents, "Aim High, Achieve More and Accomplish Greatness." So far this season, we've earned success by receiving two Excellence Awards.
The NbN balls were staged with transparent fishing line.
At the VEX World Championship, our team went to dinner at Cracker Barrel on Friday night after the new game release. We began right then to strategize and brainstorm by drawing on napkins and building "stacks of balls" from cornbread. We have progressed so much from the first meeting that night, and we cannot wait to see what the rest of the season holds!
Here we have two middle school teams preparing for their first quarterfinals match, by loading preloads and turning on their robots, from the referee's perspective. These kids have worked hard all day, improved each match and have earned these spots in tournament.
We will be celebrating Pongal, the Indian Thanksgivings Day, on 15th Jan 2016. During Indian festivals like Deepavali, Thaipusam and Pongal, kolams can be seen in every Indian household. My younger sister, Kaviyarasi and I decided to make a robot using VEX to help us draw a kolam for our house. A kolam is drawn in front of doors to bring good luck and protect the home from evil. Kolams are usually drawn by hand and it is quite tiring. Using our VEX robot to draw the kolam is so much faster and fun!
