Arden student’s team reaches Robotics World Championships

Posted on May 12, 2015

Jaye Heimlich, a Year 7 student, competed last month in Hawaii in an international robotics competition against 36 other teams from seven different countries. Her team from Sydney placed second overall which ensured that they qualified for the World Championships which were held in late April in St. Louis, USA. At the World Championships Jaye’s team won both the robot game and the overall award for their division, qualifying them for the Grand Final of the World Championships. Although not winning a prize in the Grand Final, the team certainly impressed and they have received a NASA sponsorship and automatic entry to next year’s World Championships.
