The Bodwell Robotics team – the Bodwell Bots (8001) went to it’s first competition on December 12, 2015 at the British Columbia December Qualifier – VEX-U Skills hosted by Gladstone Secondary School. Our team managed to win 3 matches and lose 3 matches in the Qualifying rounds of the tournament, this put us at 25th out of 55 teams. We were not selected for the main playoff, but we were selected to participate in a consolation playoff. Thanks to Team #5123 from Fraser Heights for picking us and being an excellent teammate. We were able to win that playoff.
Special thanks to the participation of the following students: Ziv L, Anson T, James G, Jacky C, George L, and Jesse X. Many thanks also to the Teacherbot, Mr. Griffin for providing leadership to the team and for the contents of this blog post.
