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.
This photo is a symbol of what we love love about robotics. Our favorite part is the heat of competition. We take things very serious and focus on winning. Our goal is to always win; however, we do love to have fun along the way. Having fun as a team and a class is one of the most enjoyable things about robotics. As a team we take pride in our robot and want to push ourselves and the robot to be as successful as possible.
VEX means a lot to our team. Robots mean a lot to our team. The picture shows our robot on the tallest platform showing our goal to become champions. Although VEX isn't all about winning, it would still show a good team can include other aspects than winning.
Here at NYIT, the IEEE club offers students the chance to practice what they learn in class by building projects. Students work together building VEX robots that enhance their understanding on how electronics are designed and put together. Building robots can be a challenging task, however the friendships and memories make it worth while. The photo represents one of the many close relationships at the club. It shows IEEE members, Nick hugging and Seamus at the VEX worlds 2018 competition. Their public affection gives an idea of the kind of friendships...
In VEX IQ, everyone fails. But the key to improvement is to get back up and keep on trying, rather than just giving up. In this photo, we were making a super tall stack of Hubs and at the last second knocked them all down. This happens all the time in VEX, whether your robot falls apart, you lose the autonomous code or the robot stops working mid-match. What we have learned over 2 years is that even when you feel like you've failed, things always get better if you pick yourself up and carry on trying your best.
This is a very amazing photograph because many people are focused and excited. This being the first robotics competition, everyone was eager to figure out our team members and our other teams. This was a very emotional time for me because many people had the same interests. This program brings many people together. World brings thousands of people together no matter where your from. That's why I love...
