Wycliffe Robotics Club was in action at the Vex Robotics, North London Regional competition held at Greig City Academy School, competing against 14 teams from around London and Nottingham.  In this, their first first competition, they were faced with the challenge of working with a robot, which they built and programmed themselves, to stack cones in strategic areas of an arena to score points.   The Wycliffe Robot was slow to make its mark, scoring its first points in round 3 of the qualifiers, however with some strong team talking and a desire to succeed,  tweaks were made to improve performance. By the end of the qualifiers Wycliffe were regularly scoring points in each round and qualified for the knockout phase.  Although they made it through to the quarter finals, despite a valiant effort, and with the best score of the day at 45 points, they were knocked out by more a more experienced team.   They gained a huge amount of experience and they look forward to building a more advanced robot in the weeks ahead.
