Letter to the Editors, Island Sun and Solomon Star newspapers.
According to the SIBC last night, Thursday, the Solomon Islands Junior Robotics team finished with a high, ranking of 31 out of 160 countries in the first ever Global 2017 Robotic Championships held in the US State of Washington DC.
Quoting the SIBC bulletin it read -
“Four students from Woodford International School represented the team, finishing the competition with four wins, and two losses in the three-day robotics competition.
“The competition was held to address the issue of water security globally, which participating countries asked to work with robotics to clean water on a robotic scale.
“Woodford Head of School Rachel MacKinnon said it was a huge success for the country and has put the Solomon Islands at the global level of technological innovation.
“It is something we, as a nation, should all be proud of,” she said.
“And we can only get better. Hopefully we can start planning now for the next event in Mexico in 2018.”
