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.


On the run!


VRC Team 8926, Combined IQ, invites you to view this photo of a member of our drive team taken as he raced past us on the way to a match at the 2015 Vex World Championships in Louisville, Kentucky.  As a rookie team, it was such an amazing thrill to be selected to compete at Worlds.  The size of the facility and the number of teams was intimidating.  We had to keep a very close watch on the time in order to make it from our pits to the competition field on time.  As you can see from the photo, we were cutting this one pretty close!  What makes this photo...



"When our team is competing, whether it is aligning the robot, feeding the balls, or driving the robot, our victory is all because of  our teamwork."

A Well-Spent Evening with Robots.


This is a photo of some of our team members at a get-together with a sister school of ours. Here, we worked on our bot, and exchanged many ideas and lots of beneficial constructive criticism between the VEX teams there and ourselves. We were also provided refreshments and beverages; in the back, our teacher even brought in some large pizzas with a student, to keep us well-fed and thinking. Overall, this little meeting with our fellow VEX teams at the other high school was a huge success, and a great time.

Back to Square 1


We are team 2442E from Bancroft School in Worcester, Massachusetts. We have learned that sometimes it's necessary to redesign robots that did not perform well at competition. This step in the engineering process is quite overwhelming but it will lead to a more effective Robot.

4 Teams - 1 Club


At Bancroft School in Worcester, Massachusetts we have four teams. Although we build four different robots, we still work together as one club. Oftentimes bouncing an idea off of someone else can help because this person can see flaws in your design you may not have thought of. In this picture you see our weekly meetings where we come together as a club and discusss various topics, from where we are in the engineering design process, to new strategies we have discovered.

Programming Day for 1064P (Almost HD)


Programming is a process, meaning it isn't always done in one fell swoop. We update and innovate our program based on our team's collective feedback the day after every competition. We like to call it "Programming Day" and it is a time for us to both reflect on the performance of our team at competitions and celebrate our hard work after the stress of a competition.

Live, Breathe VEX


As a team we have learned that in order to succeed in VEX robotics you need to dedicate a lot of time and effort to your Robot. For us on team 2442B this means spending extra hours after school and coming in on the weekends.
