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.
Team 4810A, the RoboCatz, were interviewed at the North Union Middle School Qualifier for the excellence award. An interview allows the team to explain the steps they took to designing the robot, why they choose their design, and what changes they plan to make in the future.
This is one of the captains of our team shaving down a piece of metal to be used on our robot's shooter. It is about 1 AM in this picture, and the competition is the next day, so we had to improvise and block the sparks off with an old board game that was lying around.

This photograph displays students in our Level 1 Engineering Class competing with VEX IQ robots. Through the process of building and then competiting with these robots, the students are able to learn about everything from programming to gear ratios and beyond. This photo's color has not been modified, natural light provides the color.
For the Robosavages, hosting a tournament is one of our favourite highlights of the year. Everyone from juniors to seniors takes part in this competition. Whether it be competing, queueing, field setting, or doing pizza orders, we all participate in some way.
