Robotics and programming trip to Highgate (8 images)

Highgate school hosted a fantastic Robotics and programming session for St.Anthony's Y8 students during last year's summer term. Activities included: programming robot's paths through a maze and engineering robots to compete against each other in a 'robot war scenario'. Students were delighted with their success in these tasks and I would like to offer huge thanks to the head of Design technology at Highgate, Andy Thomson for arranging the trip.

Robotics team through to national finals! (4 images)

No less than two St.Anthony's teams picked up trophies at the recent VEX IQ regional finals hosted by Highgate School this winter with one team progressing to the national final in Birmingham later this year. This is a tremendous achievement considering there were a total of 40 teams competing from 24 schools at the event! Trophies were awarded to St.Anthony's teams for the design and programming skills they exhibited during the competition. The judges were particularly impressed with our teamwork skills and the autonomous robot score of 9 which, as the second highest of the competition, qualified us for a place in the finals. All the boys have worked really hard at this project and I'm really looking forward to the next stage of the competition. Who knows? perhaps the boys could even get to the international final in Kentucky. My fingers are crossed. Keep up the good work lads! Oliver Evelyn-Rahr ADT HOD
