NEW TAGISANG ROBOTICS “TAGROBO” WARRIORS. Team from Bangkal High School joins 15 other school-teams in the technical training and workshop in preparation for the 2019 Tagisang Robotics: Design, Build and Play Final Competition on November 19-20 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).
MANILA, Philippines – To say Filipinos love basketball maybe an understatement—truth is, we are crazy about it albeit being ‘undersized’ for our own sake. But this year, a different type of hoops battle will defy not height but robotics might among young students.
This, as the Tagisang Robotics: Design, Build and Play Competition makes a comeback featuring a new game inspired by basketball, which will surely capture the creativity and team spirit of young Filipinos. The competition, which followed football in its previous runs from 2011-2014, will now see robots shooting sepak takraw balls in a trajectory towards their respective goals.
