Saint Maurs Noble Knights Success at Lego Jousting Robotics Competition
On Saturday 8th December 2018, Saint Maur Elementary and Middle School students attended the KIST Lego Jousting Robotics Competition.
This event requires students to build and program their own autonomous jousting robots, complete with a lance for attack and a Lego Knight which must be knocked off the opponent's platform.
This great event offers the opportunity for our students to collaborate and learn with students from K. International School, Yokoda Middle School and Yokosuka Middle School.
As always our students demonstrated the spirit of fun and learning, with statements such as ‘I am glad that my robot got damaged in my duel, because now I know what I need to improve’. This type of growth mindset and resilience is exactly what our future engineers and computer scientists need to develop, and so the day was a great success.
As usual, Saint Maur took a number of awards at the competition including;
- 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for the Elementary battles
- The Middle School Design Award
- The Middle and Elementary School Sportsmanship and Teamwork Awards
A big thank you to all the students, staff and parents involved.
