Robotics World Championships
We need your help to get to Houston
Hastings Secondary College took part in the South Pacific competition held in Sydney. Their dedication and tenacity paid off with the team successfully taking out ‘Third Place’ overall and being awarded the ‘2017 Rookie All Star Award’, competing against students from Australia, China, Taiwan and Brazil.
Six of our eighteen robotics students were offered the opportunity to represent our region and its technology future. They will battle it out against world teams testing their skills of problem solving, teamwork and collaboration at the FIRST® Robotics World Championships to be held in Houston, USA to an international audience of more than 100,000 people.
"If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you are not sure you can do it, say yes. Then learn how to do it later." -- Richard Branson
And... this is exactly what we did.
