Congratulations to Team Lightning who were victorious in the South Wales regional competition of the First Lego League.
The event was held at the Swansea Waterfront Museum on Friday, 17th January. The team consisting of Eloise Jackson-Peck and Mary-Anne Newman from year 9, Ernest Richardson-Laurens and Chloe Whitton from year 8, and Tomos Harrison and Oliver Phillips from year 7 had to complete various challenges during the day. This included a project presentation, a demonstration of the robot they created and its technical design, as well as showcasing their teamwork skills in a core values task. There was also a robot game where the team had to program their robot to complete various tasks in order to collect points.
It was a very successful day for the team with the judges commenting on how well the team had worked together to complete all aspects of the competition. With an increase in the number of schools participating this year it was an outstanding achievement to be crowned the overall winners.
Team Lightning will now advance to the England and Wales finals which will be held in Bristol in February. We wish the team all the very best!
