Christian College Geelong is proud to recognise two students who won the Senior Robot Dance Title at the Junior RoboCup National Finals in Brisbane during the school holidays.
Sophie Collier and Renee de Vlugt of Year 10 surprised even themselves when they were awarded the Senior Robot Dance Title.
In this league, robots are required to dance to the beat of music for a set amount of time and are judged on performance and timing, and also through an interview.
Renee and Sophie decided to build the dancing robots as part of their Systems Engineering class at Christian College. The robots performed in perfect timing to the music for each of their three scored performances.
It was exciting when the girls were named as finalists, but even more so when they were proclaimed National Champions.
Seven students from Christian College competed at the RoboCup Junior National finals with the event attracting 160 teams from around Australia as well as teams from Korea, Taiwan and China.
