Three year 11 pupils attended the First Lego League UK and Ireland finals over half term. They had won the regional South Wales final and were prepared to compete against 47 other teams in order to try and win the overall title and the opportunity to attend the World Festival in St. Louis, USA. It was a day of competition where as well as three rounds of the robot game, they had several interviews to discuss their robot design, project and core values. The pupils have invested hours into developing their robot and features which would allow them to complete different tasks and try to get the highest possible score. Throughout the day their team work was being assessed and discussed in the core values session as well as the project they developed which allowed a pet owner to monitor their pet when they weren’t at home.
Ben, Edward and Joseph won the Robot design in the competition and as the top placed Welsh team have been invited to attend The First Lego League World Festival in St. Louis, USA at the end of April. Exciting times, well done team lightning.
