Auroa School: Australian Robocup Champions!

Breaking News! The Robos Auroa Primary School Robotics team 'the Robos' have had an amazing achievement claiming first place in the Australian Robocup Competition!

The Boys are already regional and national champions and today in Australia, the team have been declared champions competing not only against teams from Australia but China as well. We are going to be publishing footage and details of the event when it comes to hand.

In the meantime for those of you who want to see what all the fuss was about this video is from Thursday 25th September, the day before Tom, Lucas, James and Michael travelled to Australia for competition. They showed their full performance, which was considerably different from previous versions to the school. Recorded by Harley from Room One.

This version of the performance is significantly different from the boys national winning performance, for Australia the Boys had to work with a three metre square mat (instead of 1.8m).  Also in the New Zealand version our Boys were limited to four robots, for Australia the team had to adapt to having unlimited robots as well.

On behalf of the school we would like to congratulate all the team, their families and friends for the fantastic support that they have received for this amazing achievement.   It goes without saying that there is significantly more material to come.


  1. Congratulations boys! You have worked so hard and demonstrated such talent! I have been blown away by all that you have achieved this year! SO much to be proud of. I loved the article in the Daily News too.

  2. Thanks Mrs Cocker what a great achievement for the students and our school. We'll look forward to seeing that trophy at the start of term four.

  3. That looks like real fun, That must have taken forever to program!
