Robotics competition

CLSG students at Vex IQ robotics competition

Two of City's year 8 Vex IQ robotics teams visited Telford for the UK National Robotics Championship. Competing against 59 other teams from across the UK, both teams performed well and demonstrated their robotics skills. Unfortunately, both teams narrowly missed the final round of matches. The team  'It’s Flat and It Flips!' came home with a Create Award for developing 'building a robot on a strong strategy, executing it well.' This team was also the third highest-scoring, having accumulated 99 points in a single match - the highest score gathered in a non-final match. We all enjoyed the challenge and are look forward to participate again!
