Bangkok, 8 June 2021 – After having earned the title ‘Thailand VEXIQ Robotics Champions’ in early April, having won it for 2 years in a row, the Robotics Team from DBS Denla British School has proved their excellence in Computing and Robotics yet again at the VEXIQ World Championships held live online in the USA in late May: winning 5 trophies against competitors from around the world!
‘Dogbot’, ‘Not Vile Alpaca’, and ‘God Mode’, three groups of students from the DBS Robotics Team have worked tirelessly to develop skills in engineering, robot design, technical drawing, programming, game strategy, driving and most importantly, working as a team. The participation in this competition is a result of the Robotics co-curricular activity (CCA) at DBS where students have put in many extra hours of work during breaks, lunch, weekends and more recently using their holidays for practice and competition.
Here is the list of their awards:
Middle School – Saturn Division – Team Not Vile Alpaca 55580A
Trophy 1 – Division Champions – Highest scoring team in their division for Programming and Driving Skills Competition.
Trophy 2 – Division Excellence Award – this is presented to a team that exemplifies overall excellence in building a high-quality robotics programme. An amazing achievement – this means they are the best overall in their division!
