Congratulations to our Year 7 & 8 teams who travelled to Brunel University on Saturday 18th January to compete in the VEX IQ Regional Competition. This was the first experience of competing for our Year 7 teams, and despite their inexperience, they showed great teamwork, determination and resourcefulness throughout the day, gaining valuable experience for the future.
Our Year 8 Team, "The 4 Roboteers" did themselves proud, with some well thought out modifications to their robot. The competition saw the regional points record broken and the 4 Roboteers showed great determination and skill against some highly competative opponents, finishing a very respectible joint 11th out of 46 teams.
The day gave our students the opportunity to learn more about robotics, put their driving and programming skill to the test and to represent the school in typical Olavian spirit - with respect and fearless determination to do their best. Well done to each of them!
