Robot Challenge
 
 
“Ms Gwynne and the seven students from Toolooa SHS had a great time in Sydney competing in the National Finals of the FIRST Lego League (FLL.)  The team showed amazing improvement; their first attempt at the Robot Challenge here in Gladstone saw them score 20 points.
 
Their third attempt at the National Finals saw them gain a personal best of 363 which overall for that section put them in eighth place.  The students had a wonderful time while being challenged academically, having to plan and work as part of a team while making sure they embraced the FIRST ideals of Coopertition® and Gracious Professionalism®.  While they didn’t bring any trophies home, they are already planning for the 2014 competition. 
 
Again, we would like to thank our generous supporters; APLNG, the Toolooa SHS P & C, Walz Group and QER.
