North Ryde. Rookie team wins award

The Thunder Down Under team, made up of Macquarie University engineers, industry mentors, more than 20 Sydney high school students and the soccer-playing robot they built, called ‘Wombot', was the first Australian group ever to compete in the U.S. based FIRST Robotics Competition. The team was awarded the ‘Rookie All Star Award' - the highest recognition that a first-year competitor can receive - for their efforts in designing and building Wombot and for their excellent results during the three days of regional competition, in New Hampshire.. Also, the team was presented with a safety award acknowledging the team's attention to and support of a safe working and playing environment.
