During the last four months, fifty-five boys from Years 4 to 10 have been designing, constructing, coding and improving their robots in order to compete in two sections of the State RoboCup Competition: Rescue Line and Sumo.

The competition took place on Monday in the Burchnall Sports Centre where 110 teams competed throughout the day.

Our nine Year 4-5 Sumo Teams performed well with some making it to the quarter finals. All teams had at least one win and lots of fun. I’m sure they are already planning how to improve their designs and their code.

In the Rescue Line section, we had seven teams in the Riley Rover level. This is for teams who have never competed in Rescue Line before. At the end of the preliminary round, our teams finished in 1st, 2nd, 4th, 6th and 10th places. Then in the Head-to-head finals our top two teams finished with Silver and Bronze medals. In the Primary level, we had two teams, with both finishing in the top ten (7th and 9th). In Secondary, we had four teams competing and in the preliminary rounds they finished 1st, 3rd, 7th and 8th and after the Head-to-Head, our two top finished with silver and bronze medals. Finally, in the Open level, we had two teams who also finished 2nd and 3rd in both the preliminary and the Head-to-Head. This was the first time that we had entered this section and the boys did an amazing job.

Congratulations to:

Lochie Siow: silver medal Open; Edward Gross and Aidan Du: bronze medal Open; Sunny Zhang and Vipul Pabbathi: silver medal Secondary; Charles Nguyen and Brayden Xu: bronze medal Secondary; Nazir Rana: silver medal Riley Rover; Shrihan Kalkarni, Bryan Wu and James Cai: bronze medal Riley Rover.
