Well done to the two school robotics teams “VMBears” and “Nuts & Bolts” who both qualified into the last 16 at the EMC VEX Robotics Finals in the NEXUS in CIT on Saturday 30th Jan 2016 with Nuts & Bolts being knocked out in the semi-finals. The school VEX Robotics after-school programme involves skills such as design, engineering, programming and project management and a tremendous amount of work has been put in by the students. This programme was kindly sponsored by EMC Ireland based in Ovens, Co. Cork and this year the VMBears Team was kindly sponsored by VMWare who are celebrating 10 years in Ballincollig.. The Robotics club currently meets after school on Friday and new members are always welcome.
Some photos of the day can be seen at the EMC Facebook site.
