DARA O'BRIAN GREETS THE SCHOOL TEAM
Following their much-anticipated arena appearance, Mr Thomas Walland, STEM Coordinator at Brentwood School, said: ““The experience of watching Robot Wars on television and actually participating in it is, of course, very different. It’s not until you participate that you realise what goes on behind the scenes – it’s like going into another world with the lights, cameras, smoke machines, and noise but, while impressed by all the glamour, our students weren’t distracted from the important job in hand – making their robot the best it could be. This, in itself, was a very useful skill which they’ll carry with them into the workplace. We hope that our roboteers’ experience will further inspire students around the world to get into robotics – especially girls.”
The School’s young roboteers, Team Captain Georgina Henwood, Rebecca Ashford, Juliette Skilling and Harry Millsom, faced the menacing house robots, deadly arena hazards and nine other robots in the illustrious grand finale.
Sunday’s episode was one of the biggest battles in Robot Wars history, but sadly Brentwood School and their brilliant EXPULSION were knocked out early on. Although they attempted to use a new tactic or the Ten Robot Rumble, the other robots, that were engineered by experts were simply too powerful for their robot. Although this is disappointing for Brentwood School, we look forward to your future success, best of luck next time!
