In the final week of school of quarter 2, on 3 December 2018, the Robotics CCA members excitedly participated in their first internal robotics competition. The competition was an ideal way to test their knowledge, teamwork, problem-solving ability, and creativity, and to also build their STEM competence and confidence in a fun and competitive way.

After a quick briefing, the students simultaneously started their constructions. The Grade 1 to 2 students made robots using basic The results for first place for each category were as follows:

Artec kits which they then raced on a track. The grade 2-3 students, in teams, built robots to race on a track line using Artec Studuino kits. The grade 5-6 students made sumo robots (SUMOBOT) and then had their robots duel against each other in a sumo style fighting arena It was great to see a good turnout of parents who came to support the participants, and in turn it meant that they could see first-hand what their children had achieved so far in the Robotics CCA. Great fun was had by all and a lot was learnt. We can’t wait for our next competition!
