Open to schools in Oxfordshire and run by Abingdon’s own Peter Willis, Oliver Lomax and student assistants, Saturday saw 8 teams of over 40 students come into School for the inaugural event of Robocon. This free robotics competition aims to link DT, Physics, Electronics and Computer Science in a fun and exciting event. With the support of the team at Abingdon, students in Years 9, 10 and 11 will work together in teams over the next few months, to design, build, program and test a robot. In March, they will then compete with their Robots in a series of challenges and we are very much looking forward to the result.
