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.
This photo shows the creative process of our programming team and the many emotions what we went through while trying to program our robot for the autonomous mode. It was chosen because it shows more than just a successful build, but instead it shows the trials we faced and the difficulties we overcame.
This robot, the OWI Robotic Arm Edge was one of the first robots I ever build, and I have to say that without this robot, I would not have gotten into the field and I never would have learned to appritiate how exellent the science is.
This image displays the robot mentioned above.
Fine Tuning | 2915E
Those crucial few minutes leading up to the match left to fine tune our robot, at the Kiwi Challenge competition in New Zealand, as our team works as one unit to overcome a problem. This competition is one which takes place at the start each new season, with a purpose of introducing new teams, such as ours once was, to Vex competition.
One of the greatest additions to our team this year has been community mentors. We have had 2 parent volunteers that are involved in various areas of mechanics / construction / engineering come in and guide us as we plan, build, and program our robot. Through these mentors, we have gained a more diverse knowledge base and learned so much. They have helped us face many challenges from the planning through the testing and competing. We are so appreciative to our community mentors.
This picture truly shows what VEX is all about, it shows our team surrounding our robot moments before our final match. Finalising the last things, changing batteries and getting our robot ready to go before our final match. This photo sums up the end of a long period of time working on our robot and the concentration and dedication from all the members of our team.
Never be afraid to share your knowledge and skills. Sharing what you have learned gives you better results, because it enhances your experience. Promote STEM in your community and help other young adults familiarize with robotics.
This Photo took place at the Covington Catholic competition during the hanging section of a skill run, where team 2886B is excited to see the score. the excitement that knowing that all those countless hours in building and practicing has paid off is the goal vex robotics competition.
Katie, Daniel, Matt, Ava and Daily flew in and spent the day at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. With the help of Dr. Baik we got an up-close and hands on tour of the daVinci surgical robot. It was so neat to see all the simple machine come together in one giant robot.

This is the Bot Busters! This picture was taken December 10, 2016 in Tahlequah, OK at the Vex IQ Christmas Classic. We had just won the Overall Excellence Award which qualified us for State. We were trying our hardest in all categories. We were all very excited we had won.
We are all in this photo. Our names are Lauren, Emily, Emma, Katie, and Allie. In this photo we are holding Lauren because we always like to have fun. We are outside of our school (Greenwood Elementary). We have positive attitudes. We wear pink outfits to match the fifties.
In this photo, our middle school team is researching how to use an LCD, and they have just found the bug in their code. The reason we chose this image is because it shows the teamwork needed for all aspects of robotics, including coding. This photo was taken at our school, during the daily robotics practice.
Just a Girl
perhaps many of difficulties affect on us and our dreams but it teaches us how to go into the challenges that we hesitate to get in it, and forces us to fix the mistakes that we made before, and make us know some people we didn’t expect that they might be near to us.
I hope we achieve our goals, Not only to win the competition , But also not to separate, Because when I am with my team I feel happy without a reason and that means a lot to me.
