Robotic activity at challenge
MORE than 150 students from eight schools are one step closer to having an electronic friend at CQUniversity's Robotics Challenge yesterday.
The students went head-to-head creating robots which would perform in four different categories — narrative, documentary, creativity and mystery.
Robotics Challenge co-ordinator Shontelle Lewis said the number of competitors had doubled this year.
“The participation level was very high and the gap between the winners was just a few points,” she said.
Moore Park Beach State School won two categories while Branyan and Woongarra state schools picked up the remaining two.
