Cairns SDE wins Sumo Robotics Cup!

​Congratulations to all of our robotics' students who competed in  the recent QSITE Sumo Robotics Cup at St Mary's. We won the primary school section with Louie Morandin as a our representative.

A special thank you to Leigh Howser, Bruce Cordiner, Mark Holland, Jim Buzacott, Dee Firmstone, Andrea Pumpa and Kim Coleman for working so hard with our students over the course of the workshops. Their coaching enabled students to design, engineer, calculate and construct robots in a collaborative and challenging environment.

A very honourable mention goes to Miki Sensei and Graeme Sensei for giving all participating students an insight into Japanese culture and in particular sumo-wrestling. The bandanas that were created were a standout feature.
