At the end of the competition both teams received some great results. The team of Nicholas Cavalli and Nicholas Drury (both Year 11, pictured with teacher Mr Matthew Pham) competing in the Light Weight Soccer Competition finished 18th in the Individual Team’s Competition but in the Super Team’s Competition, being combined with a team from Macau and a team from Germany they finished first and became World Champions in the Super Team’s Competition!
The second team was in a new competition that involved students building a robot that could traverse a number of different terrains. The object was to build a robot that would be measured against international standards (DHS-NIST-ASTM International Standard Test Methods) with the ultimate goal - to build a robot that would meet all the standards and be sold to rescue organisations.
Riley Cockerill (Year 11) who was competing in the Rescue Mini Arena worked very hard throughout the competition and was rewarded with two certificates the first being for the Best Robot to Traverse the Gravel Component of the competition and the other was equal first in the overall competition. Another World Champ!
Riley was one member of a larger team that was responsible for the creation and programming of the rescue robot. The other team members were Aaron Maggs, Matthew Williams, Jack Williams and Ryan Ewyk (all Year 11).
The Official results were:
Light Weight Soccer Individual teams – 18th out of 22 teams
Light weight Soccer Supper teams – 1st
Rescue Mini Arena team – Equal 1st (Best Score Finals)
It was a great competition and we look forward to the upcoming Regionals and Nationals this year and 2017 when the International Competition will be held in Nagoya, Japan.
