The iBots – Glendal Primary School Robotics - Please refer to the attached document for details and photos
Our school robotics team ‘iBots’ proudly represented Australia at the World Festival in Houston, Texas, on 19th April – 22nd April.
There were 108 teams representing different countries from around the world.
I learned that being part of a robotics team meant being able to cope with things not going according to plan (as we found out on competition day) and being able to bounce back and re-strategise. By Chiara
I really enjoyed meeting other teams and learning new things!
Also, there was an Innovation faire in our building where they had technology like Virtual reality and cool robots made to perform certain tasks. The coolest part of the innovation faire for me was “Dragon's Breath”- you chew crackers dunked into the liquid nitrogen and you can see your breath. By Dennis
The chance to go to this event and meet so many creative kids who share their love for science and technology, was amazing. I was very proud to represent Australia, see numerous teams and obviously, have fun! By Danil
I also learnt many teamwork skills and problem solving skills. I loved going to everyone’s booth and learning about their projects and their culture. By Ashwin
It is very hard for me to decide on JUST ONE favourite out of all the fun, bright experiences that I had. One of my favourites was peeking into the FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition (A competition for older kids with more interesting and heavy robots). I also liked how we traded badges and local goods and of course the Glendal iBots “shop”! By Joel
