Recently, ten students from Carmel’s new Robotics Club competed in the RoboCup Junior WA competition. Two Year 8 teams competed in the rescue challenge, designing and coding a robot to navigate to a chemical spill, rescue the victim and then manoeuvre outside of the chemical spill to safety. One Year 7 team competed in the onstage performance which involved designing, building and programing a robot to perform to music. As first-time competitors, the students did very well. Team ‘Brick Bots’ - Jordan R, Asher R and Naftali R - were worthy finalists. Log in to Facebook to see the rescue challenge and the performance ‘bot videos.
