Presentation Award
Presentation Award, 2015

The RoboRoos First Lego League (FLL) team put in an incredible performance at the regional competition click this link now. Their robot proved to be highly competitive, and coupled with a terrific presentation on the theme of recycling, they were not only successful in winning the Presentation award, but were one of the four teams chosen to compete in the Nationals in December! Congratulations to all of the team and their mentors for a fantastic performance.

University of South Australia and Rostrevor High School

On Thursday, September 24, a group of students from Rostrevor College visited the Mawson Lakes campus at University of South Australia. Adam and his son, Liam, demonstrated both the 2014 Aerial Ascent and 2015 Recycle Rush robots to the senior computing students. After a discussion about the building process and programming, the students drove the robots, avoided crashing into anything (which was considerably better than what Adam had achieved in the demonstration), and asked enough questions that it seemed almost every conceivable topic was covered.

Special thanks to the university for the opportunity, and the Rostrevor students for being such a great group to demonstrate to.
