‘Best Robot Programme’ in First Lego League

Students across Year 7 and Year 10 worked together over the Autumn term to complete in the First Lego League IOW and Portsmouth Tournament, hosted in Ryde that was held on Tuesday 21st January.

We won the 'Best Robot Programme' trophy. This is the Trophy for the most efficient and effective approach to using the LEGO Mindstorms robot to complete as many missions as possible on the LEGO table. This is a head to head competition!

Our students also completed a research project and spoke about their creative solution to traffic flow in Newport, IOW and their design for a barrage and lock gate across the medina, in line with some of the developments under proposal through the IOW Council. Councillor Paul Fuller visited the students to wish them well in anticipation of the tournament and was thrilled to see their teamwork approach to the LEGO Challenges. Councillor Fuller will now be taking the student's research project to the IOW Council's regeneration team. Our team are thrilled about Councillor Fuller's support and are keen to hear back on the regeneration team's thoughts.
