SGCS’s robotics program continues to reap rewards with our students progressing to the finals of the Wonder League Robotics Competition.
The Wonder League Robotics Competition is designed to bring together tens of thousands of children from all around the world. Virtual teams collaborate to solve real-world science and technology challenges through the programming of Wonder Workshop’s Dash, Dot, and Cue robots.
The Competition, presented by Modern Teaching Aids, commenced in late 2018, with nearly eight thousand teams from across sixty-nine countries.
The next round, which was by invitation only, saw three hundred teams in the 9-11 year old category and thirty-five teams in the 12-14 year old category competing.
SGCS is pleased to announce that five of their teams in the 9-11 year old category and one team in the 12-14 year category progressed to the final round.
Mrs Karen Binns (ICT Integrator) said:
What I love about the Wonder League Robotics Competition is that it is a great entry-level competition, even with the challenges between academic years across the hemispheres and school systems. It helps students to develop their skills in time management, collaboration, critical thinking and pure ‘hard fun’. The Competition teaches the same project skills as RoboCupJr, but runs in the off-season to RoboCupJr. This offers the added bonus of enabling our students to gain valuable competition experience all year round. We are already looking forward to the next competition.
Congratulations to all our students who competed in the Wonder League Robotics Competition.
The Wonder Robotics Team who made it into the final round include the following students:
Year 4: Billy Hyne
Year 5: Bain Changson, Ethan Cheng, Andrew Dharma, Micaiah Hu, Eleni Joseph, Mathew Maskito and Imogen Santer
Year 6: Naite Bird, Jacob Kevic, Dominic Lenzo, Kunge Li, Daniel Lo, Jack van Luyt and Gregor Walker
Year 7: Laura Madden and Serena Maskito
Thank you to Modern Teaching Aids for their support of robotics education.
