The students who attended showed tremendous creativity and ingenuity in their varied approaches to this season’s challenge.
The teamwork and collaboration between different teams throughout the tournament was a positive affirmation of why this type of competitive robotics is so popular around the world.
Congratulations to all those involved and a massive thank you to the incredibly knowledgeable staff from Sydney Robotics Academy, as well as all the volunteers, scorekeepers, judges and referees who gave their time to make this event so successful.
