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.
To shoot accurately from any location on the field, the robot constantly adjusts the angle of its shooter. This movement causes the loading-points to change each time the angle is adjusted, so, to avoid colliding parts, a flexible rubber-band ramp was created to safely guide balls to the changing loading-points.
For the entire year of 2015, 8059 sent members down to another school (i.e. Crest Secondary School) weekly, with the intention of helping Crest to setup a new robotics team and providing training and coaching to the students.
This is the best example of robotics transcending schools rivalry and showcasing the best of sportsmanship.
K-Force advertises our programs at many events where we immerse the young (and old) population with science, technology, engineering and maths which allows us to create the robots, while encouraging them to develop a passion and inspiring within them these vital topics of education
On behalf of my school's robotics team, I would like to submit this photograph showing our robot (still being assembled) with our laptop containing a photo collage of our team members during one of the many brainstorming and programming sessions. We are all very grateful to our school and parents and friends for this opportunity to learn robotics, even at the primary school level.
