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.

Planning Ahead


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!

VEX Indian Kolam Robot


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!
