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.
The excitement is at fever pitch in Miss O’ Shea’s class… tomorrow is the day when we finally get to participate in the VEX Robotics Ireland competition in CIT! A first for the school! Best of luck to all the pupils involved!
