Kibo Teams Information

Dream Rover

Team Members: Leo and Brandon (Team Managers), Ethan (Team Leader), Douglas, Jai, Annabel, Joshua

Inspired by the thought of having our own robot in outer space, we wish to transfer the skills that we have from VEX robotics to JAVA coding. We are high schoolers from Sydney NSW, and are very enthusiastic about this competition because we are interested in deepening our understanding of space and robotics. During the process of the competition, we developed a special bond through our common interest, and learnt about teamwork and determination. With hope, skill, and some luck, we endeavour to bring the Dream Rover spirit out into space.

Galen VEX

This is Galen VEX’s second year in the KIBO Robotics Programming Challenge. We are ready to go and complete the Space Mission. We are from Wangaratta, in Regional Victoria.

We have a mix of “old” and “new” members in this year’s team, so we can continue to pass the learning and knowledge on each year. Harvey, Ashlee, Kade and Zach are eager to take the reins on this one, with Mitch and Ryan helping guide them in this new space challenge. The KIBO Challenge is no easy task, but with plenty of perseverance, thinking outside the box and working with great mentors, we are really looking forward to KIBO RPC #2.

Hills Grammar

Team Members: Aaron, Jonathan, Lachlan, Ethan, Jordan, Mark

We are Team HG, a rag-tag collection of alumni and current students from Hills Grammar in Kenthurst, NSW. We are looking forward to coupling the endless expertise our trio of second-year uni students bring with the high-school-fuelled enthusiasm the rest of the team will supply. As a team we share interests in space, robotics, mathematics, and furthering our understanding of technology through solving trivial problems. Good luck to all the other teams!

Holsworthy Hawks

Holsworthy Hawks are a group of aspiring Year 9 students breaking the barriers to go on a learning journey that they never attempted before. Each member comes with their own strength, ready to tackle the Kibo Challenge!


Welcome to S.A.M. Don’t ask what it stands for, we don’t know! Our team is made up of coding enthusiasts from Caringbah HS. We are trying our best to learn Java from our knowledge of other coding languages. Our goal is to innovate the robotics sector. We aim to try our best!

Softbed Team

Team members: Phil (Manager), Dhaivat, Ethan, Luka, Oliver, Hamish, Timothy and Benjamin

We are a group of young but enthusiastic programmers in years 7 and 8 at Caringbah High School in the southern suburbs of Sydney. We are all part of a coding club known as ‘Caringbytes’ and we have joined the competition to test our skills in a competitive environment, to learn more about Java as a language, and to show the world the importance of a soft bed 🙂
