The competition required students to design robots that could compete in a set of challenges.

A group of Year 7 students won first place in the primary Robocup soccer category, with a group of Year 8s finishing third in the secondary dance category.

College engineering teacher Neil Gray said the competition encouraged the students to apply their knowledge and experience in a competitive environment.

‘Robotics is becoming an increasingly important part of modern education as it links concepts in science, technology, engineering and maths,’ he said.

The national titles will run from October 20 to 23 this year.
