A team of students from the Gozo College Boys’ Secondary in Victoria, – Mark, Paul and Toni, recently participated in a science robotics competition for secondary schools, organised by the Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST), in collaboration with the Department of e-Learning.
The initiative is part of the PLACES FP7 Project. During this event, the students watched an animated presentation on Robotics and how they work.
The teams were then presented with robots which they had to work on in order to solve a series of challenges.
The challenges they had to overcome eventually helped the students prepare themselves for the very last challenge – an obstacle race.
The Gozo College Boys’ Secondary team won, beating the competition with only a fraction of a second to spare.
All the students at the event were given a token of participation, and the members of the winning team received a science book each.
