2017 EA Robot Games Ireland

2017 EA Robot Games Ireland
Villiers School emerged as overall national champions and overall national runners up in the mini sumo robot competition, thereby retaining the title for the second year in succession. 

No less than184 teams from all over Ireland took part in 366 elimination matches as Villiers students battled it out with two of our teams reaching the final. It was bitter-sweet to see Villiers students take each other on in the final, as Eoghan Campion and Darragh Vandenberg challenged Ethan Dolan’s sumo robot who eventually went on to victory.

Adding to that success, Daniel Farushev then won the inaugural open sumo robot tournament in superb form.  This competition has no limitations on the design, components and programming of the robots and Daniel's victory shows his immense skill.

To cap off the day, Laura Holubowicz and Sinead O’Donnell-Stolz took part in the line following GP and F1 competitions taking 1st and 2nd place respectively. Their robot independently navigated a grand prix style track, clocking the fastest time on the day.

It was a huge success for all the students who took part on the day and it was thoroughly enjoyable to see them come away with so many honours. Congratulations to all and a huge thank you to Mr Browne for all his guidance and inspiration.

Teams: Ethan Dolan, Eoghan Campion and Darragh Vandenberg, Kennedy Tabot-Ndip and Jeffrey Alfred; Killian Keane and Aine Whelan; Daniel Farushev; Laura Holubowicz and Sinead O’Donnell-Stolz; Sam Dalton.
