VEX Photography Online Challenge

Last season marked the tenth anniversary of the VEX Robotics World Championship, and after so many years of experience, we would love to see exactly what it is that you truly love about the program. Submit a photo that best represents what you love about being involved in robotics. Use photography to tell a complete story with one photograph, focusing on your favorite aspect of VIQC, VRC or VEX U. Compose a photo that conveys an emotion, specifically the feeling you experience when you are doing what you love most.

7479 Team Photo "Teamwork"

connah453

Our photo represents the nature of our team and how we are able to work past our differences and pull together in a time to need. It has been used by our team to represent all the hard work and effort that went into getting us into that position and also represents the passion we all have to robotics and the stem field. Taken at the 2017 Vex Worlds Tournament, it motivates us to push harder then we previously had and continue to strive for the best to hopefully get us back in that position in the future.

Rocket like an Astrobot!

kingmjc6

The fabulous volunteers we meet along our journey in VEX is one of my favorite aspects of robotics. From our coaches and mentors to event partners and volunteers who work so tirelessly so we can reach our full potential in VEX Robotics.

At VEX Worlds, the Head Referee of the Opportunity Division was in a world of his own. By the end of the week we inducted him in as an honoray member of our team, the Astrobotz! He made our trip to Worlds the most amazing experience. Wearing our rocket jet pack, crazy fedoras and purple tutus, he...


Creating World Class Competitors

How does a middle school team go from being new to Vex Robotics to competing on the world stage? By fostering a love for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics......At Patriot HS, we seek to spark interest in S.T.E.M for middle schoolers by mentoring and giving back our  knowledge in the aspects of designing, building, and programming. This picture shows our team mentoring a local middle school team and creating their interest in STEM by becoming competitors in the VEX robotics program on the world stage.

This Picture captures the essence of what Vex robotics is all about. As Vex is not only about the competition, the learning environment, and robotics, it is also a place that brings the community together and invigorates individual and team spirit. I love how I am able to be myself and become a unique asset of vex as I wear my cardboard costume and making people smile.

Eat. Sleep. Robotics. Repeat.

calfen14

Eat. Sleep. Robotics. Repeat. This is our team motto and half of the reason our robot is named NDO_ROBO (No Days Off Robot) because we are dedicated to robotics. We put in so much time and effort to be the best that we can be this season. Through all of our struggles we persevered and won our first competition, in less than 12 months, at the Brookside Tournament taking home first place as a team! It is our passion to improve upon our skills scores, teamwork, and robot everyday we practice and we can only get better from here!

1575B Inspiring Engineers

ArranScaife

    This picture, to me, showed how much passing my passion for engineering means to me. It says that without newer and greater engineers, STEM won’t continue. It portrays past experience and skill working with its future. The future. In this photo, I see a future where inspired engineers around the globe move forward, together, to create their future, and that future’s future. This photo, to me, in and of itself, is the STEM future.

Hard Work Shows Results

This is the entry for Hadley Jones, a member of team 32545A. She says:


I chose this photo for my entry because it captures part of why I do VEX; the payoff for hard work. This year, we're fortunate enough to have been very successful in our tournament efforts so far. I get extreme joy out seeing results become real. I know it's not all about trophies, but recognition for a job well done is a very satisfying thing.

Unity in Stickers

kypyro

This is the entry for Ellen Sego, a member of 32545A. She wrote:


Vex, to me, is a single point that all participants agree on. It is something that connects and unites total strangers on opposite ends of the world.  It is a common thread that ties hundreds of thousands of people together. This picture shows how all members of the vex community, no matter what team they are on, can unite in the name of robotics. A high school team put one of our teams stickers on their own robot. We were very happy to see that.

2919C's Learning Experience

Jouveer

Team 2919C

This is a team photo taken at the 2017 APAC competitions that was held in Rotorua. To us this photo represents many things. Throught our building of this robot the whole team was enthusiastic, hard working and always working colaborativley as a team to solve some of our hardest build problems. By the end of the build we had what we thought was a decent robot. Being quite a late build, APAC was out first competetive set of games, placing immense pressure on our new team member and driver. From autonomous sequences only sometimes running, to the robot...


Jumping for Joy- I'm so happy!

Friendships in Robotics

rosezmoskowitz

This photo represents the bonds made through robotics. I have met my closest friends through being on the robotics team. Through VEX I learned how to work with a small team to solve difficult tasks, while also befriending those teammates in the process. This photo reminds me to have fun with the work I do and to find friendships with those I work with.

Last season our robotics team put in an immesnse amount of effort and will power into making our team the best it could possibly be. We put in effort into all areas without skipping out on any areas. We put work into mechanical, porgraming, skills, scouting, and match planning. On top of all this we even had a goal to work towards. One of the members on our robotics team, Justin Sanderson, his dad works in the army and he told us if we made it to...

Sharkbait

asofiservin

We always have liked to put a name to our robot, since we saw the the new challenge in last year's World Championship we decided to call our robot Sharkbait Uh ha ha (Like on Finding Nemo). After the World's we went to Target and there was a Nemo's teddy and we asked our coach to bought it for us. In that moment we knew it was going be our biggest support in the worst moments and also match with our robot.

A Learning Experience

5327X

The picture depicts a an early season moment in which we invited new entrees to our club, Gael Force Robotics to a day of VEX introduction. Two groups were formed(each armed with a senior member of 5327X) to form their own side of a reverse double four bar lift, competing against each other to build a more quality unit. The event was fun for the whole party and remains a heartwarming memory among members of 5327X :).
