RoboCup State Championships

On Friday 13 November, Year 8 students Jake Crowe and Daniel Stayt (Goofy Goobers) and Year 10 students Kyle Pegler and Brendan Mann (EV2) made it to the finals of RoboCup at Curtin University. The finals event was held on Saturday 14 November, where Year 10 team ‘EV2’ took out 2 nd place in the Soccer competition, and the Year 8 team ‘Goofy Goobers’ took 7 th place out of 40 teams, in the Rescue competition.

Over the last semester, Robotics Club students have programmed their robots to compete in the Rescue and Soccer competitions at RoboCup. To have two teams in the finals is a tremendous achievement.

A special mention to Year 7 students Josh Polmear and Lockie Jamieson who participated in their first RoboCup and made the school very proud through their efforts.

These are the best results achieved by a Warwick team in both the Soccer competition and Rescue competition since Warwick first started competing at RoboCup, in 2015. Well done to all involved and thank you to Mr Jeremy Caspersz for his ongoing support of the Warwick teams.
