St Augustine’s takes on the World

St Augustine’s takes on the World

Bailey, Ryan and Johnny have just returned from competing in the Robocup National Championship. Watch as they take a 1:0 lead against the Korean National Team. The tight game ended as a 1:1 draw. This was just one out of the nine matches that our team ‘Critical Kitties’ competed in.

Being in in a robotics team requires a great deal of resilience, as robots get smashed, programs crash, and the robotic have to be programmed for the specific game conditions. The team also showed a great deal of innovation, developing a system of gearing, which meant their robot was extremely fast. They also developed a Goal Keeper with a mean left boot!

Congratulations team, you made us proud.
