Westwood Does Robot Wars

21 May 2019 | BY cspragg

Robot Wars YEOTY Competition

The semi-final of Robot Challenge for the Young Engineer of The Year 2019 took place at Newcastle-Under-Lyme College on 29th March 2019. Two teams from WW assembled and customised their own robots and competed against 15 other schools. Only one team could go through, and it was Team 1 (‘Wei’s BAEs’) who beat Team 2 (‘Space Monkeys’) – decided on the last of the three rounds of competition. Each round involved a fight with 3 other robots in a genuine ‘Robot Wars’ arena (inc fire and ‘the pit’). Extensive repairs were carried out between bouts.

Well done to all WW competitors:

Louisa Swarbrook, Kat Sherratt, Jada-Leigh Hardy-Williams, Emily Pointon, Laura Riley, Chloe Barlow, Alistair Magee, Edward Thompson, Sam Cooper and Wei-Ming Liang.
