Last weekend our Year 9 robotics team competed in the Robot Rumble sponsored by MBDA and hosted at the University of Hertfordshire. They worked hard building a robot using a VEX robotics kit that would collect and stack cubes. The team finished third in the qualifying tournament. They also had to record their progress and problems in an engineering notebook that they presented to the judges.
The same weekend saw our Year 7 team compete in the First Lego League sponsored by IET and hosted at Queen Mary University in London. The team used Lego Mindstorm robotics kits to complete multiply challenges in the First City Shaper Challenge. The team also made three presentations to the judges that included discussing the robot and its challenges, a research project completed throughout the year as well as discussing the team’s core values.
