The Sydney leg of the ‘Everybody Dance NAO!’ competition was held this year at The Connection in Rhodes stylish Event Space and was warmly hosted by the City of Canada Bay Libraries.
Leading up to the grand ‘dance off’ our top ten teams had only an hour to perfect their coding with NAO under the mentorship of Brainary Interactive’s robot specialists, Jordan and Mark. The pressure was on to tweak any glitches and adjust those wayward algorithms, using an array of excellent problem-solving skills!
And the results were awesome - each team created a unique dance for NAO, while working brilliantly together to ensure their program would be the best it could be.
Now for the winners ….
The BrainBots from Elementary Robotics Academy won in our primary school category with a superb dance programmed to music they had also composed.
St Patrick's College for Girls Campbelltown won in our secondary school category with a sleek and sophisticated dance, which NAO pulled off without a hitch.
Well done to all participants for making the day a huge success!
We would also like to thank our partners at The Connection, Rhodes and the City of Canada Bay Libraries for their assistance on the day and for supporting this event, and a hearty thanks to all the students, teachers and families involved!
