Mechatronic Ants impressed all the judges, referees and the public at the exhibition and conference center in Tenerife. Our team got the highest marks in the Scientific and the Values Projects beating the spanish record with their robot reaching 816 points. They were at the top position of the global clasification from the early begining.
 
Our youngest team, 'Incredible Squirrels' were not that far. They got the third position in the podium in the robot table -they were 37 teams in total- and they made a great performance during the project presentations. This team was composed of young children aged between 9 and 10 years old and they were the biggest surprise of the championship. The Spanish cup was missing in our track record and we just got it. The team from the plant in Murcia have also reached the level of the best teams. 
 
Congratulations!!
