COEL sponsors Robocon 2018
COEL was delighted to be one of the sponsors of this impressive robotics event held on 14th & 15th of April in Cambridge.
Hosted by Hills Road Sixth Form College, the event brought together eight teams of students in a test of their robotics & engineering skills. Each team was given an electronics kit and a set of challenges. They then had four months to design and build a problem solving robot to complete those challenges. The competition (which took place within a custom-built arena provided by COEL) involved each team demonstrating the skills of their robots, through a series of competitive rounds.
We’re pleased to say that the Cambridge teams did amazingly well, finishing in first and second place!
The winning teams were:
First Place – Hills Road Sixth Form College, Cambridge
Second Place – The Perse School, Cambridge
Third Place – Richard Collyers College, Sussex
