About three months ago, the team received an elaborate engineering task: to build a robot that would be able to pick up a ring and weave it to a height of about one and a half meters. Under the leadership of the course coordinator Yizhar Rahmani and the teacher Tom Curtis, and with amazing teamwork and with the assistance of several mentors, the students were able to complete the task and take first place.

The team won the district competition and the national competition, and managed to qualify for the world competition, but due to the security situation, many flights were canceled and there was concern that it would not be able to reach the finals. Still, at the last minute a solution was found and the team participated in the competition, won it, and in fact brought the highest achievement for an Israeli team in the competition ever since.
