主軸任務 「智慧機械」考驗創意

每一次的主軸任務,都是佔最終成績的一大部分。相較去年的「戰爭博物館」,這次題目的創意成分又更高,而題目要求要在幫助人類社會的前提下,設計一種能移動,甚至有思想的機器,考驗小隊的機械思想與創意。

Each year, the main task requires imagination and creativity, and it stands for most of the final score. Unlike last year’s “Reflection of the War”, this year they have to design a moving machine, it can be a robot with thoughts or a nanometer-machine that can read mind. It can be all kind of usages.

捲土重來 復興實中首度挑戰決賽

「謝皓胤不喜歡吃芭樂啦!」團員們大肆笑著說,「外面硬硬的裡面軟軟的很噁心」是他不喜歡吃芭樂的原因,也不知不覺成了今年私立復興實中參賽的隊名。其實在2015年的智鐵比賽中,大部分的成員就已經以「指導老師好帥」隊名前進複賽,差一點進入決賽的他們也決定在考完學測後報名參加,並且今年順利晉級決賽。

“Hao-Yin Hsieh doesn’t like guava.” laughed the members. “Guava has a Hard Outside but a Soft Inside, Ewwwwww~” this is the reason he doesn’t like guava. And it gradually became their team name. This is not the first time they participate in IICC. They took part in the competition as “Our Teacher is so Handsome” in 2015, and they nearly got into the final. This year, they went back and finally got in to the final.

商店商品千奇百怪 驚喜包超熱銷

決賽一開始,各個隊伍就瘋狂報名闖關,希望能在最短的時間賺到足夠的錢,去商店大血拚。這次決賽商店因應主軸任務的內容,增加了一些小隊會需要的商品,店長張仕霖表示,因為主軸任務要求的會動的機器,今年特別推出「移動聖品」四驅車後,果然瘋狂熱銷,連四驅車所需的電池都供不應求,足足賣了四大盒以上。

By the time they announced the start of the Main Task, teams went to tasks crazily, wish that they can earn more money to go shopping. Because of the Main Task requested to make a moving machine, IICC shop this year specially sell Four-wheel drive. Not only Four-wheel drive sold very well, the periphery products, batteries also sold super well.

粉紅獨角獸初參賽 面對破產越挫越勇

六個穿著粉紅連身服的大男孩貫徹著隊伍的精神,《Pink Fluffy Unicorn》是他們的隊伍名稱,這個充滿少女心的隊名背後有很深的涵義,他們是來自新加坡的華僑中學隊伍,認為獨角獸是個存在於夢想及魔法世界的生物,因此將其形容為友善的象徵。隊長Nicholas表示:「我們就像個小時後畫的塗鴉本,有魔法彩虹和各種幸福快樂的元素,每個人都和樂融融。」

Six big boy wearing the pink jumpsuits, they are “Pink Fluffy Unicorn”. They are students from Hwa Chong Institution. And this colourful cute team name is actually much more than a cute name. They said that the unicorn stands for the diversity culture of Singapore. Unicorns are kind of the magical creature in a dream world, so it’s an icon represent friendly people. And why they chose pink is just because of their favorite colour. “You know it’s like paint book we alldraw before, and there are Magic rainbows, happiness and friendliness all that in it,” said Nicolas, the team leader.

語言文化差異 國際組天使挑戰大

智慧鐵人競賽中,天使是個不可或缺的存在,在整個賽事進行過程中,除了主辦單位的行政人員和關主外,天使是最貼近參賽者的人物,除了陪伴小隊、統整他們的問題再回報給大會外,也幾乎全權負責小鐵人們的食宿。72小時的決賽,隨隊天使分三個時段不間斷照顧、幫助小隊員們順利完成比賽。

In IICC competitions, there’s an important role called “angels”. They’re work are more trivial but they can be more close to the contestants. They are responsible for taking care of the teams and hear their problems. Angels help the teams 24/7 in these three days.
