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.
For my senior project I had decide to start a VEX IQ team at the Elementary School. I was able to not only start 1 team but 2 teams. In this picture I am with the girls team. They are showing me the progress that they have made with their new design arm design.
After losing in the quarterfinals, our team is out of the running for Champions—but that doesn't mean our job at the tournament is done. We may no longer be competitors, but we're still there watching the action. Wildly cheering for the winners and respectfully clapping for the defeated: that's what it means to be in the audience.
Sometimes robotics is a lot like a roller coaster. There are ups and downs. You win, and the excitement takes over. You aren't doing great, and the nerves take over. In the end, the ride was so much fun that you'll definitely want to go on it again.
This photo was taken at the end of a hardworking season that led us to VEX Worlds, and the afterparty at Kentucky Kingdom!
This photo was taken at 3 am at a Robotics Lock-in. While most other teams were fast asleep, I took the opportunity to slow down and sort my Team Tool Box. Cleanliness and tidiness has become an important quality to me since joining Vex. Taking the time to stop, reflect, and manage your environment is an invaluable quality for Robotics.
We choose this photo cause we wanted to show our team laughing but also at a competition, this is or frst competition on the 2017-2018 robotics year. So in this picture we are sitting near the skills field waiting for it to be our turn on the field, so we were all sitting together and laughing about things, talking about memories. This is all of pur second year on the team except one of our team members Alessandra Flores.
It’s the night before the competition, you look out the windows it pitch black. The robot has been working mechnicy fine the whole week. But for some reason when you test your autonomous program the shaft encoder are not functioning. Something must be wrong with the sensor. Whatever it is, it must be fixed for tomorrow tournament.
In the photograph, my goal was to sweep the rings to the side to score points for my team the STEM Squad. Robotics are our future and each and every time I am able to come to school and learn to build, program, and drive the robots, I see a bright future ahead of me.
