RoboCup Junior - Regional Competition
Last week saw the 18th running of the RoboCup Junior Geelong Regional Event at the Highton Middle School Campus. The event was an exhibition of STEAM at its practical best. This year’s event attracted 44 teams from 11 schools, and 136 students.
The Sports and Aquatic Centre was a hive of activity with wall to wall problem solvers, engineers, programmers and artists showing off their many skills. Christian College was successful in five out of the six different competitions conducted. Students competed in Robot Rescue, Robot Soccer and the more creative On Stage League. The students from Bellarine were very competitive in all divisions and attained the first three places for the On Stage League. Special mention to Ruby Lockman and Abbey Hodgson for coming first.
This event has been a great launching platform for the State Competition, which will take place at the University of Melbourne during term three.
