Some pupils from 5th and 6th classes are doing Vex Robotics. We have built a robot and are going to be competing in a robotics competition against 15 other schools on the 17th of January in Sáile. We picked the Flex Build Robot and the robot’s name is Krush. The children in 1st to 6th classes voted to pick the name. In the competition Krush has to work with other robots to move cones and earn points. We will gain extra points because Krush can hang from a bar with its strong hook. We are also very proud that we have programmed Krush to move autonomously. We are looking forward to a very exciting day.
We need to say a big thanks to the transition year students and Ms Hay from Kinsale Community School. We couldn’t have done it without them!
