On Friday 22 and Saturday 23 November, the Northbridge International School Cambodia Grade 6 to 8 Robotics Team competed in the first annual ROBOCUP at ISPP. The tournament was organised by student leaders from ISPP's 'Whyres' club.

The event started on Friday with some breakout sessions, teaching students important robotics engineering techniques like line-following and gear ratios.

On Saturday, the competition challenge was revealed, to design a 'rescue' robot that would be able to find and rescue objects in a set scenario within the time limit.

Students spent the morning designing, building and testing their robots. Some of the designs utilised line-following, proximity sensors, mechanical arms and claws. It was very interesting to see how the different teams approached the challenge with wildly different designs.

For six of our seven Northbridge participants, this was their first robotics tournament experience, but they very quickly found their feet.

Sam, Sim, Pagna and Rattanak's team finished fifth in the robot challenge with a brute force design that 'rescued' by basically destroying every obstacle in its path!

Uddom, Bunhak and Fulong's team went with a precision design that carefully rescued by swatting victims from the top of buildings and launching them across the playing field to land in the 'hospital'.

They finished in 2nd place in the robot challenge but scored highly in the other categories of Collaboration and Robot Design meaning that they finished 1st place overall Tournament Champions.

Congratulations to our Robotics Team for a successful tournament and thanks to the student leaders at ISPP for organising a great event!
