The said competition was participated by the following Grade 10 students of the Junior High School Department:
"Knowing that we were going to represent our school for the robotics competition held at Cebu, we were all nervous. I myself did not expect this to happen and I wasn^^t ready; we weren^^t ready. But despite all that, we had fun. Even though we were cramming in all the nights we stayed there, we still kept on fighting and tried our best to bring honor to the school. Even though we were a bit exhausted because of sleepless nights, we had our optimistic mentors to cheer us up and motivate us to keep going. And above all that, we learned a lot throughout the journey. And that^^s itself is already an achievement for us." — Stavrus Jan Baldomero on his learnings and experience.
The following students will be presenting their robotics prototype at the Slingshot Dumaguete: Fourth Industrial Revolution and Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship on November 19, 2019, sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of Science and Technology.
