On Friday 26th January, two of our younger robotics teams headed off to Henrietta Barnett School to participate in the VEX IQ Ringmaster Challenge Competition.
It was a very competitive event with 27 teams participating in total. We faced some very experienced teams including Henrietta Barnett School, Queen Elizabeth School and Fortismere.
Despite some tenacious driving from our teams, our robots Starburst Galaxy and JESSE scored 454 and 322 points respectively, meaning they failed to qualify for the final round of the competition, which was eventually won by Queen Elizabeth’s Gear Squad and the independent WGC MicroBots. However, the Year 8s and Year 9s put magnificent effort into the building of their robots and represented the school well.
