Galen VEX’s Next Adventure… Into Space!

It’s no secret that Galen’s VEX Team has hit the highs on the surface of planet earth, they’ve done the World Championships… So over the break the group recently decided to try their luck in outer space… with the FIRST ever KIBO Challenge.  “We are one of 15 Australian Teams who have signed up. There are only 7 countries involved – Australia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, UAE and Bangladesh,” explained teacher Maree Timms.  “The winning ‘code’ from each country will get the chance to send their code up to a robot on the International Space Station. We completed a two day workshop (via zoom) over the term break and we are well on our way.”
