EPRO8 Challenge Win

August 23, 2016 at 9:57 AM

Last night two teams of four students from the Boys’ School, representing Year 7 and Year 8, entered the EPRO8 technology challenge competition. 

EPO8 pits teams of students against one another to complete a variety of tasks in a set amount of time. Each team was located at a workstation that contained an impressive assortment of equipment, including gears, wheels, pulleys, weights, tools, aluminium framing, motors and electronics. Working quickly and collaboratively, the teams were required to plan/design and build a model Mars rover, cranes and swing, all within certain specifications and under time pressure. The heat was on!

Competing against seven other schools, the boys were racing against the clock to gain as many points as possible. The Year 7 team just missed out on going through to the next round with their Mars Rover whilst the Year 8 team came first equal with Glen Eden Intermediate School and will be going on to compete in the semi-finals next month.

Congratulations to all the boys for showing outstanding collaboration, critical thinking and perseverance, they did us proud!

Year 7 Team: David Ryder, Ben White, Matthew Vaughan, Alexander Coates
Year 8 Team: Marcus Findlow, Matthew Chandler, Kevin He, Nathan Bailey
