Robotics Return Rewards

During the Spring vacation fourteen SGCS students travelled to Melbourne for the Australian Open National RoboCupJr Championships at the Melbourne Function Centre and Tennis HQ. They were accompanied by a great cheer squad of parents, coaches and Mrs Karen Binns, SGCS Robotics Coordinator and Mr Wilson Cheng, ICT Manager.

The competition involved over six hundred students from every State and Territory in Australia and one hundred and sixty-eight teams across the three challenges.

Our students did an outstanding job at the championships as they displayed grit and determination, creative and critical thinking skills and had ‘hard fun’.

Congratulations to all our students for their outstanding efforts.
