Lord Mayor’s Picnic
Greg was out and about on Sunday 6th November at the Lord Mayor’s Picnic with some of his friends. Big shoutout to the GongInvaders for joining us.
We conducted a robot demo at FISC on Monday 8th August for National Science Week. It was lots of fun and Greg, our robot, scored 2 baskets – great shooting!
A few members of Team 7583 spent the day at KidsFest at the Illawarra Light Railway Museum on Sunday 22 May.
It was a great day and fortunately the rain held off, all the kids seemed to have fun “feeding” balls to our robot Greg
Fitzroy Falls Adventure
Big thanks to The AVCON Foundation and Optimum Experiences who hosted us at Fitzroy Falls on 26th March.
They tested our leadership and collaboration skills and took us out of our comfort zones. Even the weather couldn’t dampen a great day!
2022 saw us compete at the WEC in the Southern Cross Regional for the Rapid React season.
It was great to be able to attend an event in our home city of Wollongong and there were some amazing robots on show.
We ended up getting knocked out in the semi-finals after being Alliance Captain 5. The event was taken out by the strong alliance of Barker Redbacks, Pymble Pride and Artemis.
