Congratulations to Tilly O’Donnell, Leona Kamuhangire and Anneliese Surveyor who competed at the National Robocup competition in Dunedin this past weekend, placing third in the Junior Theatre division. They took part in an interview process where teams are asked about their process, problem-solving techniques and coding, they then performed a Batman-inspired two-minute performance.

Isabella Clarke, Isabella Donald and Sophie Riggall competed in the Senior Rescue Division where they had four rounds to compete by following a winding line on a series of tiles to a designated rescue area. On the way the robot could encounter obstacles, bridges and short cut opportunities that challenge our girls. While the clock is still ticking the robot must find “the victim” before pushing them out of the danger zone to safety.
