Term 4 Week 5 Update

Well Robotics is powering ahead and last week we had a successful third Skype with Northland Prep. in Arizona. The club has been building a special table with a number of challenges that robots will have to complete. The theme is "Seniors Challenge" and requires the students to consider the needs of the elderly in the community. The team showed us what they were planning and we then demonstrated a 'tug of war'. Our students have been building and competing with robots designed to win a 'tug of war' contest. The construction has been trickier than expected and some major re-builds were required!
