Students from Camden Haven High School travelled to Macquarie University in Sydney on Sunday February 24 to compete in the 2013 FIRST® LEGO® LEAGUE National Championship.
The Camden Haven team was one of 33 teams of students aged between 9 and 16 years, to take part in the final stage of the competition.
Roughly 500 students were involved overall. Each team is made of up to ten children and one adult mentor.
Challenged with demonstrating how smart robotic engineering can improve the quality of life for seniors, the national tournament drew some unique and impressive robotic design solutions.
According to the Camden Haven High School team, it was a great day of fun. Although the team did not win the competition, it was unanimously agreed the effort was worthwhile.
The winners, the I C Robotics team from Melbourne, have now been invited to represent Australia at the FIRST® LEGO® League World Festival.
