On Saturday, January 19th, Shreedhar Suresh Kumar and Lukas Snell from QA Sidra earned 2nd place medals in the Lego Robotics Competition at the American School of Doha in the Elementary Division. Maleka Sallam, Ilyas Bermak, and Saamia Shahid fought mighty in the arena and nearly placed as well.
The competition was played in a Sumo arena. In a round robin style format, the robots battled to push each other off the ring and were awarded points for each win and tie. Students tweaked their playing styles mid-competition to gain advantage and were awarded for their out of the box thinking with wins. With the knowledge gained from their first robotics competition, the students are well prepared and already thinking about next year’s competition.
