Recently students from Year 4-9 at Babinda P-12 State School were invited to participate in a workshop to develop their technical robotic programming abilities through the Queensland Society of Information Technology Educator’s Robo Cup Competition.  The workshop provided a great opportunity for students to learn about teamwork while creating and coding robotic technologies with their peers. 
After the Workshop on Thursday and Friday students then travelled on Saturday to Cairns School of Distance Education to compete with other schools in the Cairns area.  Primary students Andom, Zac, Cody and Robert took part and won the “Rescue Challenge” in their category.  In this contest students were challenged across a number of increasingly difficult stages to design and code a robot to manoeuvre through a course under, over and around obstacles to complete the rescue.  Secondary students Lulu, Casey, Lily and Levi’s challenge was called the “RoboCup Dance”.  In this contest students coded their robot to stay on the dance floor and dance to the beat of the music.  The secondary team received the encouragement award for their performance.
Both challenges required strong team work with the end result being both very impressive for spectators and very rewarding for the staff and students.  Mr Thompson, Babinda State School’s Principal, said that, “It’s fantastic to see students so engaged in learning these type of 21st century skills and the parents and staff here are so proud of the teams and their performances.”    Next term students the robotics teams will compete in the Robot Grand Prix event which should be very exciting and challenging too.
