Presenting our new Vex Robotics Team for the 2018 competition season – Turning Point.
It’s just the start of the new season and we are excited to try our hand at the new robotics game and learn new skills along the way.Lately, we have been very busy at work, thinking about how best to play the new game and putting our robot together.
Fingers crossed – Turning Point, here we go!
Part 2 of the 2017 Vex Robotics Competition Nationals was held in Melbourne. Our team decided to have a final chance at playing the In the Zone season as they enjoyed the preparation for the entire season and have bonded and developed strong friendships over their love for robotics.
Congratulations to our Team Robotic Boomerangs for their success at the Melbourne Vex Robotics Competition Nationals because they took away the top award!
Yes, Team 89999A won the Tournament Champions Award which is the top award of the Melbourne competition. Congratulations to the team for their hard work and overcoming all sorts of challenges through the season to produce such a great showing at the Nationals! We are beyond thrilled!
The Vex Robotics Competition Nationals was held in two parts this year because the weather in Wangaratta was not ideal over the weekend of 2 December 2017. Part one of the Nationals was held in Wangaratta and Part 2 was held in Melbourne the following week.
Team Robotic Boomerangs 89999A worked hard all season for the In the Zone challenge and while they won some tournaments, others proved to be very valuable learning lessons on how to improve their game and overall ranking. The season itself proved to be challenging with members having their own tasks to do, school work to complete and various other activities. However each member did their best to contribute to the team and commit to practice sessions which finally paid off!
Team Robotic Boomerangs 89999A made their way to Wangaratta despite the inclement weather, to participate in the Nationals. After a long day of a couple of rounds of games, the team made it to the finals and finally walked away with not one but three awards!
Congratulations to Team Robotic Boomerangs for clinching the following awards:
Tournament Champion (in alliance)
Robot Skills Champion
We are incredibly proud of our team for their hard work, dedication and their core values which they displayed all season. This was totally unexpected but very much welcome and one of the great conclusions to 2017! Well done, everyone!

Presenting Innovate Technology and Robotics Academy’s robotics team for 2017 – Robotic Boomerangs, Team 89999A.
Team 89999A members have participated in various robotics tournaments through the years and now in their teen years have decided to take their skills up further by participating in the Vex Robotics Competition “In the Zone” which is Season 2017 – 2018.
The team took the Tournament Champions title (in alliance) at the “In the Zone” Season Opener on Saturday 12 August 2017! This is a good start and we will continue to press on and do our best!
Last Saturday, 12 August 2017, Innovate’s Team Robotic Boomerangs 89999A went to Doreen for the Season Opener of the Vex Robotics Competition “In the Zone” season 2017 – 2018.
Our team had a great time, though it was a last minute dash to get everything ready but yes we did and yes we truly had fun! Watching other teams play and the interesting robots each team had, made it all the more eventful as our team played the best we could.
We learnt so much during the Season Opener and each team mate had a nice drive up to Doreen, bright and early to start the day. Love our dedicated team members.
It was a challenging day but all in all, we put in our best and emerged Tournament Champions in alliance with 2 other school teams. More importantly, all students had a great day and now we have to keep working through the “In the Zone” season.
Congratulations to Robotic Boomerangs! Let’s move onwards to keep this season going well!
