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 photo portrays my perspective of our robot. It may look like just the robot, but really it shows the things that I love about robotics. The vast amount of tools and materials, the robot, and most importantly the team. Our team is great and works very well with each other. We are very productive. At every competition our bot has reached an alliance selecting position.
VEX Robotics has many different aspects to it. You have building, programming, and journalism. In this photo I am focusing in on building. So many different parts go into it, like screws, c channels, rubber bands, motors, and many different types of nuts. I feel strongly about building because it resembles these tiny parts, that make a whole. This is sort of a symbol for the world, with robotics. So many different people from different parts of the world, doing tiny things just to compete on the global scale.
In this photo, the team is working diligently on a conflict on the robot. Jackson, the lead builder, is leading the discussion and the plan of attack in order to alleviate the problem. I am planning and picturing the field in order for my autonomous to correspond with the robot.
Robotics has transformed the human vision to a more prosperous one, creating a more efficient citizenship when generating ideas and carrying out highly complex tasks. The existing machinery has been very useful for the breakdowns left by natural phenomena in our area (Puerto Rico).
It is not the same thing being told something than seeing it with your eyes. Robotics is said to be innovating and enjoying, but is that certainly true? Yes, because we saw it through our own eyes! It has filled us with love and passion why obtaining unique knowledge.
Movement cannot only be made by one person or one object. Robotics is a great example of what is to make a movement by working in a team. Movement would't be possible if we didn't work in a team. And if we did make a movement without a team, it would've been backwards not forward.
Sometimes when stuff hits the fan and I feel overwelmed, I am able to continue with VEX Robotics because of my friends. Without them I would not have continued doing something so incredble. They understand the presure, they power through the long build days with me and most importantly they stand by me and support me in everything. Because of this, I will cherish them forever.
The picture that best represents robotics
Robotics is a place where you can learn many skills involving engineering. Robotics can also be a place where you make new friends to help you during your time in robotics. People who have been in robotics for a long time can teach things to new people who join robotics.
VEX Robotics to me is seeing hours of hard work and team work culminating into a working machine and cohesive team.Competing in VEX is not about winning, but applying engineering principles to a real life application and sharing your successes with your team.
