Robotics enthusiasts at Wales High School have beaten off national competitors to win a LEGO challenge.
Pupils made a video about their experiences building and remotely programming a robot.
And their submission was chosen to win the Elite Engineering Programme mini-challenge. Judges said they showed ‘great enthusiasm and creativity’.
The team won a LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set and transformer worth more than £300 for their robotics club.
Maths teacher and STEM coordinator Simon Kerfoot said: “Our robotics club can now be expanded to allow more pupils to join.”
Team member and video editor Liam Blood addeed: “Winning this EV3 core set has been brilliant. I was so pleased when Sir to told me the fantastic news.”
The school hopes to build on this success by creating a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) club to help the school’s budding young engineers.
