Prempeh College Grabs 2020 World Robofest Championship Trophies

Kumasi-based boy’s school, Prempeh College who were crowned winners of the 2020 Robofest World Championship held virtually have grabbed their trophies from the organizers of the competition.

Special arrangements were put in place by the organizers before the school received their trophies even though they won the competition last year October and had to wait until April 20201 to have their trophies handed over to them in a ceremony.

Prempeh College has been champions of the World Robofest Competition in the years 2013, 2016, and in 2020. Team Milgolf one of the three from the school that was among the six representatives from Ghana, beat 21 other contenders in the senior game GolfBowl.

In the same senior game, AgyengoGolf and EddyGolf, both from Prempeh College, finished third and fifth, respectively.

In the juniors division, MomaGolf, a team from Mount Olivet Methodist Academy, came in third out of 23 teams playing in the GolfBowl.

Prempeh College qualified for the world championship by dominating the regional and national championships earlier this year, where they placed first, second, and third, respectively.

The Prempeh Mikogolf squad, made up of Francis Awortwe Junior, Ablorhey Tetteh Jude, Gyandoh Asiedu Ekow, David Nintang Junior, and Christopher Alhassan, gathered at their school science laboratory for the world championship, where they were supervised by their tutor and organizer, Mr Peter Agyeman.

They were given the task of designing a robot that could be attached to a piece of wood and put golf balls in five different colors into a hole slot in a fixed amount of time without losing any of the balls.
