Two teams of 12th-graders from Haifa's Ironi Gimmel have won the first and second places in the national Roboner robotics championship held in Ra'anana last week, reports www.mynet.co.il. The two groups have now won the right to represent Israel in the international school robotics tournament being held in the US this April. According to the report, contestants in the annual Roboner competition must build a robot that can move independently around a model of a furnished four-room house and find and extinguish a burning candle. The robot that does this with the greatest precision and in the shortest time wins. The report said that Haifa's Ironi Gimmel sent three teams to this year's tournament, which achieved first, second and 11th places. The first two teams will now have the right to represent Israel at the aforementioned international school robotics contest, held annually at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
