The 2015 challenge, “Trash Trek”, was based around recycling, following the theme set by the earlier FIRST Robotics Competition challenge. The RoboRoos took part once more, competing in the regional competition and picking up the award for the best presentation. This took them to the nationals in Sydney, where once again the team took their robot (the “Tiny Round Unicorn”) to compete against the best in Australia. There they picked up the Gracious Professionalism award and were one of ten teams chosen to compete in the worlds.
Unfortunately, timetabling schedules meant that we had to end our campaign in Sydney, but being selected was a wonderful reward for all the work that the students and mentors and put into the competition.
