Springston School RoboCup participation

Two teams from Springston School took part in this year's Christchurch RoboCup Junior Rescue event, held for a full day on Sunday 16 August at CPIT.

Both teams had appreciated the benefit of mentoring and extra practice opportunities through Lincoln University over recent months, and enjoyed their four rounds of competition. They represented Springston School with their best A+ characteristics and worked hard throughout the day to improve their programming. They certainly reflected the Mission statement for the RoboCup competition:

It is not whether you win or lose, but how much you learn that counts.

Here are a couple of videos from two of their rounds. Sorry boys, Carol mucked up the videoing of your last round - your best one - so it isn't able to be presented below.
