GubeX Enterprise won 3rd place in the country qualifying for the regional finals in Slovenia
GubeX Enterprise, a team of the students from our school, participated in the national finals of the First Lego League robotics competition held on January 18th at the Zagreb's Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing. The team in which we have MYP 0 and MYP 3 students was 3rd best in the tournament, which was enough to qualify to the regional finals in Slovenia.
First Lego League is the biggest robotics competition in the world with over three hundred thousand students participating, and we remember it by the amazing success of the last year's team that went all the way to the world finals in Lebanon. This year's theme of the competition was "City Shaper" and along with programming the robot the students had to solve a problem our world faces, similar to the community project. Our students were solving problems of traffic in front of the school, as well as our school not recycling nearly enough. They went to visit companies where they talked to experts. They also got some donations in the form of new recycling bins for the school.
To achieve this result months of hard work were put into the competition by the students, and now they have a chance to compete for one of the two places leading to the world finals which will be held in Houston and in Greece.
