IGS helps spread word on Zero Robotics competition

IGS Zero Robotics team member Tom Loh recently featured on ABC TV Weekend Breakfast with University of Sydney competition coordinator Penelope Player.

Tom and Penelope were interviewed by show hosts Andrew Geoghegan and Johanna Nicholson, to help promote the Zero Robotics competition to school students around Australia.

Through Zero Robotics, high school students learn C++ coding and have opportunities to control robots in the International Space Station.

The international competition is run by NASA and top US tech university Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and has just been expanded to include all interested schools in Australia.

The University of Sydney has been active in bringing the competition to increasing numbers of Australian students, including International Grammar School.

IGS appreciates opportunities to collaborate with other organisations, including the University of Sydney, on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) activities and other projects. 

Tom and other IGS Zero Robotics team members are grateful to University of Sydney Engineering students who mentored them last year, and are looking forward to the competition this year.
