Cordillera - Students from Abra High School who were part of the Robotics Team of the Philippines had won bronze medals in the recently concluded World Robot Games 2021.

The theme of the World Robot Games 2021 online edition is “New World After Covid” where students were challenged to create an innovative robot in line with this year’s theme. 

The team invention is a Portable and Dual-Powered Renewable Energy Source Hands-Free Hand Sanitizer Station. The group was led by their school principal Mr. Jose Bernardez and coach Jephunneh Gasmen.

Despite the trials brought by the pandemic this year, the group was still successful in their mission. 

Venice Balbin, one of the participants in the contest said, “Despite facing difficulties during our training because of the protocols, we did not stop. 

"My parents would drop and pick me up at our training place and I really appreciated it. Our team would also have group chat meetings. Life definitely throws challenges in the pursuit of our dreams, but in this situation, no matter how hard life is, we should not surrender," she added.

Regional Director Estela CariƱo also gave a message for the participants. 

“DepEd CAR congratulates the Abra High School Robotics Teams composed of Venice, Marc Dei, Keneth, Shefally, David, and Ma. Teresa for winning bronze medals in the World Robot Games 2021! Your representation of our country is already an achievement which is worthy of a spot in our history books! Congratulations also to your ever-supportive parents, coach, principal, and Schools Division Office, "he said.

”As a student, all I can say is that believe in yourself. Never give up just because of a failure given that it is part of success. Don't let any hindrance stop you from pursuing what you want, ”Sheffaly Valencia told fellow students.
