Year 6 robotics team places first in NSW

One of our brilliant Year 6 teams placed first in NSW in the SPIKE Prime national robotics competition, working together to design, build, program and present the award-winning ‘Stego-saw-us!’.

Last term 3 teams from Year 5 and 6 competed in the NSW SPIKE Prime Competition. 

73 Teams, 262 Students and 1000’s on lines of code later the results are in!

The competition required them to research this year’s theme, Journey, and work together to design and build a robot using the Lego SPIKE Prime kits to complete a journey into a particular world or place. As part of their submission, teams were required to create a 3-minute video showcasing their robot and complete a very detailed portfolio of their innovative design, the process they used to build and code their robot, including modifications and problems that occurred along the way.

The three teams gave up many, many hours in and outside of school to work together on their submissions, persevering to ensure their robot and code were complete.

Congratulations to all teams for their hard work, excellent collaboration, and creative designs. 

Team “Marty Mechanics” went back to the future, “The Cool Bobs”, entered Avengers world to help save the day.

A special congratulations goes to team “Stego- Saw-Us!” for being awarded first place in NSW for their dinosaur, “Dorothy” who journeyed through a television set to travel through the movie set of Jurassic Park. 

Team Stego-Saw-Us, are now preparing for and will now take part in On Stage another robotic competition which will be held in August.
