On the last weekend of the last school holidays, 9 students and their parents and teacher mentors travelled to Melbourne. They competed in the season opener of the 2018-2019 Challenge for VEX IQ Robotics.
Prior to the meet at Copperfiled College, Sydenham, the students came into school for a 2-day workshop to build their robots.
On the day, our two teams competed in 25 qualifying rounds in alliance with students from other teams.
They represented themselves and their school with pride and distinction. They placed 5th and 6th at the end of the day.
