On Tuesday 29 March, Habs Girls hosted the MBDA robot rumble competition. Nine teams of 74 students from eight different schools battled it out on the VEX robotics competition field to secure a place at the National competition in Telford in April.

There were several matches during the day. Our Lower 5 team worked brilliantly together to drive and code their robot and made it to the semi-finals but sadly flipped their robot upside down in their last match.

The MBDA mentors (58 of them) coached their teams throughout the day and Chris Calver from VEX Robotics oversaw the scoring. It was a great event and later we found out that the Lower 5 team had secured a place at the VEX National Championship! We are looking forward to this and the MBDA finals in June.

Congratulations to all those involved!
