Our boys conducted themselves in the manner befitting fine gentlemen of the College. They were great sportsmen and ambassadors for the College and assisted other teams with their robots so that they could compete. The main aim of RoboCup is to provide an educational, fun experience and for competitors to make new friends and share their knowledge and experience.
The future looks bright for BBC Robotics with such talented young men at the fore. With two teams having qualified for the RoboCup Junior 2020 World Championships in Bordeaux France next June, the quality of the Robotics program stands out among the rest.
BBC Robotics has had a stellar year winning the Brisbane Regional, Queensland State, Australian Open and World RoboCup Championships.
