Local Stem Champion Represents WA

Last Wednesday I presented Issabella Bullich a Captain of ‘The Wilder Wolves’ of Cecil Andrews College with a Matt Keogh Good Sport Award. ‘The Wilder Wolves’ are taking part in the First Robotics Competition, an international robotics competition helping students engage productively in STEM and robotics.

I presented Issy her Good Sport Award for displaying good sportsmanship, fair play and for always being inclusive and promoting STEM to her peers.

Issy was nominated by her teacher Mr John Townley for being a fantastic female role model in STEM and for actively inviting her peers to take part in the club and always making them feel welcome.

It was fantastic to visit Cecil Andrews College and see the ‘Wilder Wolves’ “Den” firsthand and learn about their Robotics program, meet the students and hear about their passion for robotics.

Cecil Andrews College and Armadale Senior High School flew to Sydney Olympic Park in New South Wales over the weekend to take part in South Pacific Regionals with Cecil Andrew’s ‘Wilder Wolves’ ranking 11th overall with a record of 7-6 and qualifying through to the quarter final knockout rounds.

It is great to see students in our community representing WA in the First Robotics Competition, an international robotics competition and building skills for the jobs of the future.
