Claretian roboticists showed their excellent skills on the mat by garnering top awards in the Robot Virtual Games (RVG) Championship 2021 Philippine Regionals held on November 4 to 8, 2021. The event saw action among elementary, junior and senior high students who participated in the Philippine Robotics Olympiad and have qualified to join the RVG Regional Finals. Claret Senior High Team A composed of Juan Gabriel A. Flores, Enzo Rafael A. Zapanta and Leorenzo Antonio C. Dometita, all Grade 11 students were declared the champions in the Senior High School Advance Category. Claret Junior High Team B ranked 5th in the Junior High School Beginner Category. The team was composed of Ethan Jadrei B. Peños and Xian Karl V. Rimando from Grade 8, and Alejandre Kendrick C. Arellano from Grade 7. In this particular competition, a mat or playing field is given on the day of the competition. The mat is composed of a track where the robot has to travel and pick up as many objects as it can, and bring the objects to a designated area in the shortest time possible. This event required very good programming skills to navigate the robots. Even though the Claretians have excelled in robotics , they were always reminded to keep their feet on the ground and continue to remain humble and helpful to their fellow team members and competitors.
