Nine students ranging from Years 4 to 8 travelled to Maryborough on the weekend to take part in the Robotic tournament at the annual Maryborough Technology Challenge.
The College fielded three teams in the Sumo Robotics Tournament with over 80 team competitors from schools ranging from the Sunshine Coast to Wide bay and ages of students ranging from Junior to Senior College within the same division.
PLC entered two teams in the midget division (robots weighing less than 750 grams) and one team in the monster division (robots weighing between 750 - 1250 grams)
Our monster team of Varsh Surapaneni, Noah Taverner and Ethan Donahue came an amazing first place in the monster competition.
One of our grade six teams comprising of: Ashton Clues, Josh Lusk and Julian Schiripa came second. (Beaten only by a team of year 12’s).
Our third team of Maddie Clues (Year 4), Liam Brown and Luca Buttrose missed the finals by a mere 10 points.
The students were fierce competitors and represented the College extremely well.
Go PLC robotics!
