For those who have not heard TRC, Tagisang Robotics is a varsity type soccer robot competition for high school students.
Tagisang Robotics is hosted by Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) and ThinkLab as their training partner together with E-Gizmo Mechatronix Central as ThinkLab’s industrial partner.
More than thirty (30) public and private high schools in Metro Manila and nearby provinces battled it out in a competition where camaraderie, teamwork and strategy is the name of the game.
This year, come November / December 2013, the final competition will be held for the Tagisang Robotics 2013. New mechanics, new teams and new soccer bots will be waiting so just stay tuned to our posts here to get updates and to be a part of this momentous event.
HAVE AN AWESOME THURSDAY EVERYONE!
