DOST 4-A, LSPU-IDD conduct first Robotics Tournament

AS part of the celebration of “KaSYENSaYAhan sa CALABARZON 2023”, DOST- CALABARZON organized its first-ever Preliminary Elimination Round of the Regional Robotics Tournament: RoboClash 2023 with the theme “Conquering Ideation: Imagine, Ignite, Inspire,” in collaboration with the Laguna State Polytechnic University (LSPU) and the Ideation, Design, and Development Laboratory (IDD) on September 12, 2023, at SM City San Pablo.

The tournament successfully achieved its goals by effectively highlighting the students’ skills and expertise in robot designing, control systems, and programming.

Student representatives came from various schools across the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon.

They participated in the Line Tracing Category, which uses autonomous robots to accurately trace or navigate a path or track by following a line at a specified time.

On the other hand the Sumobot Category, inspired by sumo wrestling, uses autonomous robots to push opponents out of the ring or disable them within the time limit.

Two representatives from each province in CALABARZON have progressed to the Grand Finals in both the Line Tracing and Sumobot Battle categories.

The students who have advanced to the Grand Finals in the Line Tracing Category are:


● Phebe De Galicia, Gilson Leif Titular and Samantha G. Balitaan from Lipa City
Science Integrated National High School.
