But they did good.
Despite the robot not doing as well as they'd hoped, on the competition table they got into the final top 8 - 7th we think in the final scores. The other aspects of the competition went well. Their presentation (they said) was a success. They spoke to members of other teams, got to chat with last year's winners, Untitled 1, whose 6 years of attempts had culminated in a truly amazing lego robot. They had a lot of fun.
All the competing teams were awarded medals. Then, to their surprise, C14 were given the 'Innovation Award', an award for 'extraordinary creativity and innovation' in robot build.
Some very chuffed boys.
