Published on 21 November, 2011
CQUniversity Bundaberg recently hosted 21 teams for the Secondary Robotics Challenge, including entries from Gin Gin High, Bundaberg North High, Bundaberg High, St Luke's and Shalom College.
There were some independent teams made up of students across different schools, as well as some Year 7 teams from Branyan, Moore Park, and Bundaberg East state schools.
The annual competition was organised by Dr Rosie Thrupp from Bundaberg Campus with help from graduates Peter Feerick (now an IT specialist) and Donna Edmunds (who now manages an After School Care facility). The judges were Tony Nguyen from MicroAir, various Learning Management students and academics Ron Bishop and Marg Flanders.
Dr Thrupp said "some brilliant and creative thinking was evident" throughout the day.
