Zero Robotics 2016/17

 


In the 2016/17 competition five Australian high schools made it through to the Zero Robotics Championship Event and programmed robots in space. We had some incredible results, with our team coming second and equal third overall!

Zero Robotics Australia

The Australia-only preliminary competition enables Australian high school students to gain valuable experience in coding. Students also learn the mathematics and physics behind the motion of the SPHERES robot and develop strategies for successful game play within the game premise.

Students need to work as a team, delegate tasks, communicate effectively and be well organised. These are valuable skills that students can apply to their schoolwork and that will be invaluable should they consider further studies beyond high school.
