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.
This photograph represents the emotion and enthusiasm we all share for vex robotics. Our team went to the state championships not expecting to win, being knocked out on semi-finals. But we were awarded the excellence award which granted a spot in the vex world tournament. This photo was taken right after the award was given to our team. It shows every member of the team overjoyed, as well as our advisor cheering out of joy. Overall this picture is a perfect example of how much pride is exerted over the topic of robotics.
This photo encapsulates my favorite part of robotics: teamwork. A huge part of working on a robot involves teamwork. Everyone in the picture is working together on the bot in some way, whether actually building on the bot, providing guidance, or retreving parts. Each member is essential to the building process and needs to work cooperatively with each other in order to complete our desired tasks. This is what robotics means to me: being able to bring a group of people together with a variety of ideas and directions and unite them under a single purpose.
The image i chose show the majority of my team discussing the new disign for our bots towers, i named it backseat building since only one of my team members was touching it since there was limited space. This image has to be my favorite picture that i have every taken during robotics not only because of some of my team members ridiculous poses but also becuase it shows them all working and brain storming as a team
The best part developing VEX projects in elementary school is not just about researching, creating and learning. It is about enjoying every step and being amazed with the small things. We are the first robotics team that our school have, so we wanted to show our classmates what is this about and share what we have learnt. We enjoyed a lot this exhibition and for sure they too.
One of the things VEXIQ teaches us is how to be good problem solvers. In this picture I am fixing the robot in between matches. One of the parts became loose. I found it and put it back together. I also added an extra connector to make it stronger.
"What difficult times?" Everything was easy because we worked together as a team, with such energy, we reached our goals and accomplished such feats that we had never even thought were possible. One thing I learned in VEX Robotics and probably the best thing is the value of teamwork!.
This is an image of one of our builders jackson, he shows passion in his work and loves explaining what we're doing even if the only people who will listen is kids
Walking into a tournament you immediately feel nervous. After your first match, you start to get your foothold on where you stand. You climb the ladder to victory; you gasp and relish in the euphoria and glory. However, instead of remembering the ultimate display, the pinnacle, the final step, you remember the small moments and the little foothills in your daunting sojourn. People say that teamwork and establishing good company are cliched. They are, but that’s because those feelings come naturally to people. They’re important because you need them, and that’s...
We can observe in the photograph elemental things such as gears that symbolize physics and mechanics, symbolize also computers that shows 3d designs and programming, gloves which symbolize hard work and security. The main joystick linked to the partner joystick symbolizing teamwork. The robot who lifts his arms up, stacking the eleventh cone, showing the process towards excellence.
Robotics is a science that relies in technology, design, engineering, physics, mathematics that applies to robots. This is an opportunity for me to let go my imagination without limits...
This photo shows, the quality and delivery of our students to show the importance of robotics and STEM, the methodology applied to students is that what they learn they can explain in a simpler and easier way for later mentors reinforce knowledge and address new topics and these do not have a difficult understanding
This year has been great for our UTGZ Robotics STEM Academy
This picture illustrates our team as a whole. We chose to take the picture as we did in a group to illustrate how close we are as friends and even more so a family. We meet almost every day whether to work on the robot or hang out as friends. Robotics has served as a bridge to bring us together and allow us to share some of the best moments of our lives.
The picture was taken after our robot was completed and demonstrates our strong teamwork, creativity, organization and enthusiasm. All members were intrigued and contributed to the process of building the robot. The expertise of each member has contributed to the team’s success. Each part of the robot was painstakingly constructed and assembled from many parts, such as c-channels, axels, screws, collars, nuts, gears, spacers, etc. The accomplishment of building our robot has shown our team spirit which we define as solidarity, mutual assistance and striving for a common goal. We are... Read more
In robotics, there are so many value components that can be learned for a successful future. I hope this photo conveys my absolute gratitude for the many people that help myself and other students become prepared for the future. I love robotics and I hope you do too!
The image will appear upside down, due to my inability to fix it. Sorry.

Little things make big things happen."

The tiniest difference in spaces can affect the construction, and these seemingly inconsequential errors can affect the overall performance of the robot.
Here, one of our builders is seeing whether an additional 1 mm washer can enhance the stability of the mobile goal intake to improve its accuracy.
Our image aims to show the lengths teams go to in order to make the robot as mechanically ideal...
Our all-girls robotics team, the Circuit Girls, absolutely loved designing our robot. We also love spending time together and applying our creativity in other ways - especially if glitter is involved! We're having a great year. We're learning a lot and can't wait for more competitions!
In VEX, as in most aspects in life, its not about winning, its about doing what you like, finding something enjoyable in everything you do.
VEX its about teamwork, dedication, not giving up, celebrating achievements and learning about mistakes, as everywhere else.
VEX is more than just a robotics program, in VEX you learn to live.
