The AST robotics team has been working overtime to prepare for their first VEX competition.   On Sunday October 21 they got on a bus to go to Taoyuan Arena for the Taiwan International Robotics Tournament.

They were nervous, excited and ready to learn.

Their hard work paid off. ASTonishing Team A was awarded the Excellence award, which is the highest honor of the tournament. They performed very well on the field and were fantastic during the engineering notebook interview. ASTonishing Team B brought home the Design award, this is given to the team with a very organized and professional approach to the design process, and they did very well in the interview.

Both teams had already planned to go to the VEX competition at Taipei American School on November 30 - December 1.  With these awards they qualify for the Asian VEX Championship in Macau, also November 30 - December 3.

I know they will continue to work hard to prepare for whichever tournament they choose to attend. Congratulations!

AST機器人學生代表隊一直以來都利用大量課外時間在努力準備他們第一次的VEX機器人競賽。 10月21日星期日當天,他們終於整裝搭乘巴士前往桃園參加本屆台灣國際機器人大賽。


在比賽現場,學生們都很緊張、興奮並準備好面對挑戰,從中再學習。


但同學們的努力獲得了很好的回報。 我們的ASTonishing Team A隊在比賽中得到卓越獎,這個獎項是本次競賽的最高榮譽。同學們在比賽中的各項細節上都表現得非常出色。 ASTonishing Team B隊也獲得了設計獎,這獎項對於我們代表隊在設計程序上所展現的組織和專業能力給予了最佳的肯定,同學們在面談部分也都表現得非常好。

這兩組代表隊同學原都已計劃於11月30日至12月1日要參加在台北美國學校的另一場VEX機器人競賽。而這次在桃園所獲得的獎項,也讓他們獲得參加11月30日至12月3日在澳門舉辦的亞洲VEX機器人錦標賽資格。


我知道不管他們將選擇參加哪裡的競賽,代表隊的同學們都還會繼續努力為他們所選擇參加的比賽做最好的準備,恭喜他們 !
