Blessed Are the Geeks

Date: November 7, 2017

Congratulations to our grand finalists and runners up in the recent First Tech Challenge Regional Robotics Competition. Our team of boys who represented Suncoast exceeded all expectations today and played as a team outperforming many fancied sponsored competitors (some teams have 5 financial sponsors) including the two selective Queensland Academy Science Math and Technology Teams. In some cases there was a 10k difference in robots and materials.

It was great to see the boys take adversity head on and adapt to challenges whilst being creative, including everything from power issues, communication disconnections and controllers programmed upside down. We were also the only team to have smoking motors, that’s how hot we were. We used everything from Bunnings screws to Tarzan grip.

The boys were also the first team brave enough to tackle the autonomous challenge for a number of rounds before other teams copied the Blessed Are The Geeks strategy. The boys should be proud knowing that it was their robot that they built with their programming skills and teamwork that helped them reach the final. We gave up 20 points every round as parts that we ordered from the United States hadn’t arrived in time. We can proudly say that the boys were also good sports – well done boys. Thanks Mr Gavin Tomlins for leading these talented students. Thanks also to Mr James Jongebreur for your valued assistance. Onward to the Nationals.
