Vex Robotics Nationals
Some last minute issues nearly prevented team Spectrum and team Tron from being at the Vex Robotics Nationals in Telford. However, some people are made of tough stuff and none more so than Trishan, Alex, Darius and Emilian. They used their grit and determination to make it happen!
The two day event was a highly competitive battle between some very impressively engineered robots. The challenge to pick and place various objects on the pitch, involved some strategic decisions to try to maximise points.
Both teams had some highs and lows, but overall their performance was admirable. Team Tron achieved an awesome 2nd place in their league whilst Team Spectrum finished a very respectful 6th place in their league.
Well done to all the students involved. They represented the school in the best possible way.
