On December 1st and 2nd, our robotics program will send four of our teams to Taipei to compete at the Vex Robotics Tournament held at Taipei American School. Last week, thee of our teams competed at the Vex Robotics Tournament held here in Tokyo. Their robots were well prepared and a solid performance was seen from each team. None of our teams made it to the finals, but they all had some successful matches along the way. Seeing the high level of some of the competing teams has inspired our young robotics engineers to make some upgrades to their robots before the tournament in Taiwan. They have already begun working and we look forward to seeing just how much they can accomplish over the next week! The tournament can be viewed live at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/jXzuph23fTs.
