Seven youngsters from Bath have been named the World Champions in the 2013 Robotics challenge having beaten over 20,000 international teams.
The 11 – 15 year olds making up Bath’s ‘Team Untitled-1′ are from Ralph Allen and King Edward’s schools. They successfully competed at National level, before making the trip to St Louis in America where they proved themselves to be the very best of the 80 teams that made it through to the world finals.
The seven involved in the team are Freya, Tom, Dani, Max, Joe, Rafi and Claudia. They said: “It’s the team here.. Well, we say “team”, but WORLD CHAMPIONS is more appropriate!!!!! Yes, slight shock. We have just beaten 20,000 other teams worldwide becoming number one in Lego Robotics!! Wooo!! We think it’s true because everyone’s taking our picture but we might need a pinch or two!”
Thanks are given by the students and their teachers to the Bath companies and organisations that sponsored their team and made it possible for them to become World Champions.
