VEX Photography Online Challenge
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 VEX IQ Challenge, VRC or VEX U. Compose a photo that conveys an emotion, specifically the feeling you experience when you are doing what you love most.
Build, Destroy, and Repeat!
These are the fundamentals of robotics. All three of which were exercised during our Robotics night-long Lock-In event! In the photo you can see all our members posing inside the tent, even including the robot!
[Names are as follows; Stallsmith, Aine, Helen, Gabi, Piunno, and Taban.]
We are the AquaBots and modern day Rosie the Riveters. During the STEM competition at Worlds, we had to wait outside the judging room. We had time to practice our STEM skit, which was a presentation about Rosie the Riveter and the laws of robotics used on naval ships. We decided to have a little fun and practice our speech in our wagon. My mom says that we were "goofing off", but we really were practicing. We ended up winning the STEM Research Project Award for the Viking division! Extra practice (even in a wagon) really does pay off.
We had so much fun creating a dolphin enrichment toy out of recycled robotics parts. While learning about marine conservation and the durability requirements of dolphin toys, we thought of a good idea to recycle last year's game parts. We presented the dolphin toy to our local marine institute. Apollo the Dolphin loved our new toy and our toy even survived all of his sharp teeth!
One our team members(Matthew) is touching up the robot before our tournament in two weeks. One of our other team mates in the back (Andrew) is not pictured, but is working on the chromebooks seen in frame. He is working on finishing our program for the upcoming tournament. Hard work is being done to meet our deadline in a couple days to be fully operational for competition.
Our roboot is in our programs field to be tested with its new skills autonomous. We also are aiming to test its overall performance to give our drivers more practice with controlling it prior to our first major tournament of the season. Our main programmer (Hunter) is visible in the image resetting the field after a skills run. In the near future we will be in the process of adding a new component to our bot which is intended to hold caps more securely than our current mechanism.
Since last year, I fell in love. It was not a transient love but a permanent love. I love to delve into the world of the complex machineries of VEX in the Zone. I
Success is driven by innovation and cooperation. The VEX robotics team is a group of highly motivated and cooperative students. I love their teamwork. The adrenaline-busting cycles of VEX in The Zone competion they participated in also gave me a fond emotion.
Daniel Frascella is perfect! Perfect in what? Undoubtly that he won third place during the Southlake competition. He has earned the perfect status from...
We were in a hot sweaty room. Scouting, driving, practicing, having judges meetings and having fun. It was finally time for awards. We were waiting and waiting for our names to be called. The last award. Excellence. And it was our number! We were so excited to get our award. The hard work was worth it all. The old members of the team were there to celebrate with us. So we shared one big group hug.
Three people. One robot. When building the machine everyone’s hands go on a robot, and that’s visible, but most people forget that so do their minds. Everyone’s designs, ideas, and opinions go into a robot each year, because everyone sees the robot from a different point of view.
In robotics it is better to have more hands because it will ways help in time and team chemistry.Also it is better to have some others to help you because in robotics it can be hard to build a really good robot all alone. That’s why I think this picture represents team work because you probably won’t succeed with out team work
