34 students, representing 13 teams, from our newly formed Robotics Club took part in their first national robotics competition – The World Robo Tournament on 25 June 2014. This year, the event attracted more than 100 teams from schools all over Singapore.
Pathlighters did the school proud by winning 2 awards in the DragRacz event: 1st Runner Up - Division 1 and Most innovative award. The DragRacz event required the teams to have their robots move swiftly and accurately in designated lanes, and the fastest robot won the race.
This event was memorable not so much for the awards, but for the opportunity that Pathlighters had to mingle and interact with students from other schools. Pathlighters also showed good sporting spirit in mentoring younger primary school competitors, teaching them how to use gears to make their robots go faster. They also displayed excellent team work and perseverance in solving a puzzle game! The teams are looking forward to participating in the next World Robo Tournament!
Congratulations to all Pathlight Robotics Club students for the good work!
