January 16th, 2020|Class of 2021, Class of 2022, Photos, School News, VEX Robotics|

Pupils from Mr. O’Brien’s class participated in the VEX Robotics Regionals on Thursday.   There were many aspects to this project, e.g. running a PR team, doing project management, working out strategies, designing a robot, building a robot, programming the robot, putting together engineering log books, amazing art work, etc.!

There were 21 schools competing on the day and the competition was tough.  They showed great teamwork and did our school proud!!  They put in a lot of hard work in their VEX project and walked away with the top award, the Excellence Award.  Well deserved!!  Congratulations!!

Have a look at our videos gallery for more footage of the day.
