    QSITE Robotics Grandprix Winners!

    Written by Hugo Lawler // Primary Vice-Captain

    On the 14th of September 2019, the Freshwater Robotics Team competed in the QSITE Robotics Grandprix Competition. For the whole third term, we engineered and crafted our own robots to ZOOM past opposing robots and the clock, either on long, vast stretches of drag racing track or on a challenging circular track complete with tight and tricky turns. We needed hot speed and cool control. Luckily we had both!

    There were two race types in this round of competition. They were: Racer – to race around a circular course, and Dragster – to race down a straight track. Both of these race types consisted of a versus (against a competitor) and a time … Read the rest

    QSITE Robotics Rescue Competition 2019

    Written by Hugo Lawler, 6H Primary Vice Captain

    On the 22nd of June, 2019, the Freshwater College Robotics Team competed in the QSITE Robotics Rescue Competition. For the whole second term, we created our own robots to follow lines, go up ramps, go through doorways and save a victim (or in this case, an aluminium can). We won the competition, but it was no easy challenge!

    Our team had to create robots to navigate around the course by following a black line. We also had to make them turn on green intersections. When they found the silver goal line (or the ‘search for pod’ goal line) the robots had to search for the can and push it out of the … Read the rest
