We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Team SWITCH, which comprises two talented students from Vinschool Times City T37 Secondary & High School and one student from Brighton College Vietnam, for achieving the first prize at the 2023 Vietnam STEM Robotics Championship, held on October 8, 2023. This competition stands as a large-scale, prestigious event in the realm of STEM robotics for secondary and high school students nationwide, drawing the participation of over 200 outstanding teams from various provinces and cities across the country.

The members of Team SWITCH include Lê Phan Anh, a talented, eighth-grade student in class 8B02 at Times City T37 Secondary School and a member of the GATE center, Vương Minh Tuấn, a sixth-grade student in class 6B03 at Times City T37 Secondary School, and Lê Phương Anh, a student from Brighton College Vietnam. They displayed remarkable courage as they surpassed over 96 exceptional teams from 16 provinces and cities nationwide in the final round, focusing on the theme of “Robot Throwing Discs.” Their advanced skills in robot design and programming, logical thinking, teamwork, impressive problem-solving abilities, and profound social awareness, greatly impressed the discerning panel of judges. These judges, experts from top universities across the country in Science and Technology, included faculty from the Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Hanoi National University, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Electric Power University, University of Danang, and other esteemed VEX Robotics experts.

Notably, Team SWITCH had previously earned the “Best Design” award at the VEX Robotics World Championship 2023 in the United States in May. Additionally, the Vin OCP HSRL 01 team, consisting of three Vinsers from the Vinschool Ocean Park Schools, had the honor of securing the second prize at the national level of the Robotacon WRO competition in August, and will represent Vietnam in the world finals in Panama in November. The achievements of these Vinsers are a testament to the efforts of Vinschool teachers and students in the field of STEM education. Through a diverse array of core and extracurricular activities, Vinsers are equipped with knowledge and skills related to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, fostering creative thinking and nurturing 21st-century skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem-solving, innovation, and creativity.
