From the National-level competition and onto the International stage, our Robotics @GreendaleSec took part in the World Robot Games (International) 2017, hosted by our country Singapore, on Friday (10 November) and Saturday (11 November). Not only did they participate in the SUMO Robot Showdown 1kg (Junior) Category, but also in the Battle Ballz (Open) Category:
We won the Bronze Award for it, after rounds of intense competition which included a University team from Thailand! And that’s not all: the best part is our only participating team beat them, fair and square, as their robots looked huge and intimidating!
For the SUMO Category, two of our three participating teams managed to get in the Top 8, and one of them came in 4th position!
On the overall, our school was awarded the Country Best Award for the exceptional performance during the competition!
Let’s congratulate the following teams, for these amazing accomplishments:
Team Battle Ballz
Jedd Laurance and Nabil Hussain (of 2E2), Lee Mingxuan and Javier Lee (of 2E3), and Kavinesh (of 3T1)
Theodore Ong (of 2E1), Maxwell Timothy (of 2E2), Odelia Chua and Shermaine Yeoh (of 2E4)
We would also like to congratulate and thank Mr Abdul Rahman, Mr Yusoff, and Mr Tan Hee Lam for their tireless effort and help, prior to and, during the competition, the OSOs for accommodating the work done for it through the late evenings, and last but not the least, our D&T Head, Mr Chang, and the School Leaders for their utmost support.
Well done Team Robotics @GreendaleSec!
