National Robocup Competition 2015 Update

Yesterday we left Auroa School with two teams to drive to Palmerston North to catch a plane to Christchurch to compete in the amazing National Robocup Competition!

Well, Christchurch certainly put on the weather for us! A nice plane ride down and stunning weather today.

We are competing at Burnside High School in an amazing auditorium.

The boys are prepped and ready to go to their interview. 

As well as competing in the National Robotics Competition in Christchurch, it is Keifer's 13th birthday! Happy Birthday Keifer!



Okay we have had both teams compete in the Theatre sections of the National Robotic Competition 2015 in Christchurch.

So now we have finished. We are on a time frame. We need to catch a flight in an hour and we are impatiently waiting for the prizegiving.

What will the result be.....
Keep watching to find out!

And the winners are....

JKLMinators got third!

Third in New Zealand in Robotic Junior Theatre! Woohoo!

A big thank you to Sandy Gardner, the National Coordinator, to allow prize giving to go ahead early so we could have prize giving  so we could catch our flight back to Palmerston North on time:)

Trip home!
