On the 9th of December, 2 teams made the long journey south to Palmerston north to compete in the inaugural vex national championships
VEX IQ Robotics National Championships 9 December 2016
Two teams of Year 7 students travelled down to Palmerston North for the VEX IQ National Championships. Team 2919M consisting of Tiffany Ho and Pippa Plummer and Team 2919N consisting of Alex Mckay and Harry Yang experienced their first major competition. With the junior competition format being slow to establish in the Auckland region the Kristin teams have had little competition over the course of the year. Both teams worked hard over a full day of competition with 2919N finishing in 16th place and 2919M finishing in 30th place.
