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.
Shining now means a brighter future. Titan Robotics is proud to present our STEM curriculum. At Ridgeland High School, we have 2 classes dedicated to Engineering. Engineering 1students comprehend the Engineering Design Process and draw CAD while Engineering 2 students build clawbots as well as draw CAD.
On October 29, 2016, team 5150D was blown away to receive the Excellence Award at the Danbury High School Starstruck Qualifier. The team of eight had been working feverently just the night before in order to make their thoughts come to fruition. The photograph captures how hard work will inevitably yield reward.
David helping L.J. ,A Student At Seattle Nativity, help figure out strategies on how they want to play the Vex IQ game, Crossover. Seattle Nativity is a Catholic school for underserved students in the Seattle area. We are committed to give them the best opportunity of success, learning, and fun.
David, Kieran, and Mirabelle working hard on figuring out what the plan for the rest of the tournament should be after the arm broke. This is a great strategizing moment because it allowed us to finish 1st in qualifying at the Halloween Bash in Lake Stevens, Washington.
In this photo, our robot is picking up two hex balls so it can score ten points in the medium height goals during a driving skills practice round at Abraham Lincoln middle school. I took this photo because it shows our accomplishment of picking up hex balls off the wall.
In this picture, we see a 6th grader from Cranbrook, named Askari, who is test-driving his robot on 1-8-17. He works with the team 37T whose name is the Super Smash Bots. He has just made a change to the chassis which should make it easier to go up the ramp with 6 hexballs.
This is the most important picture to me. It shows Andrew and I putting our ideas and building skills together to create the mechanism we are proudest of, a rack and pinion as our pole lift.This picture reminds me of what we can accomplish if we work together.
The 90Xcutioner team is testing the drive train of the robot for the first time at Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center in Downingtown Pennsylvania on January 4th, 2017. The 90Xcutioner team is part of Brandywine Robotics Vexmen. The team is comprised of five sixth grade students Steven, Kamal (driver), Ethan (programmer), Toby, and Velavan.The robot was not working correctly and the main programmer was making sure the driver was using the correct controls. This picture shows the whole team trying to make the robot work correctly.
This photograph is of our team - Brampton Robotics/ Team 1104S. This photo was taken at our coach's house during a build session. Our robot was experiencing some issues with our claw, so we used collaboration to get the job done. We learned that collaborating not only finishes the job faster but it's also fun when you're working with a team!
In this photograph my teammember is fixing the motors and gears of the claw stand in our robotics class. The photo shows the robot getting programmed by my other teammate. The claws stand has four motors and four gears with the core in middle of the robot. In front of the wheels of the robot have protecters so the wheels can stay in place.
This is a photo of our team designing and recording our second lift. We had just decided to remove our last lift to make this. It required hours of work and learning new concepts. All members of our team worked diligently to complete this component. We are very proud.
5150H is a unique team with great ideas and collaboration between members. In the image, the team is having a discussion about improving our drivetrain and troubleshooting one of the motors which temporarily stopped working. This particular photo was chosen because it portrays how the whole team comes together to utilise an engineering process and finds a solution to our problems. As shown in the image, David Duback, former builder and designer of 5150H is suggesting that we should extend the length of the drivetrain to prevent it from tipping at the front. According to his idea...
The KIS VEX ROBOTICS club leaders devote their time into planning an efficient and intriguing session, while also promoting teamwork. The members work diligently while having fun and support each other constantly. The VEX program has enforced every member with a strong basis of STEM. This combined with the ongoing application of teamwork shows that the club will continue to progress and advance.
