During Spring term five Year 12 computer science students took part in a robotics competition. The challenge was to build and program an autonomous robot that could collect boxes. Our robot did remarkably well against far more experienced opponents and significant improvements were made to the robot over the course of the competition weekend in April at Hill’s Road Sixth Form College. We look forward to next year having learned an enormous amount and we will be in a position to build a more competitive robot. Thank you to Hill’s Road for organizing the event and to the Institute of Physics for providing financial support to enable us to build our robot.
