The Schools Robotics and Coding Challenge kicked off in 2019.  Schools from around the metro were invited to bring Grade 7 and 8 learners to spend 2 hours on a Friday afternoon to learn, practice and compete in robotics and coding challenges.   The schools’ League was hosted by CodeABot in conjunction with its community outreach arm, New High Trust [PBO 930053808].

Challenge teams met once a week for 2 hours at the CodeABot Robotics and Coding Centre.  The first League saw Pearson, Collegiate, Harvest and Herbert Hurd go toe to toe.  The results of each Friday’s challenge were posted on the website and at the end of the league program the winner was announced.

This is what others had to say about the School League:
