Lego League at the University of Reading
Mr Goff and his team of robotic experts entered the Lego Competition
On Monday 15 December, twelve girls embarked on a journey to the University of Reading to compete in the First Lego League - World Class competition. Weeks of preparation by all of the girls involved to design and programme a robot as well as create a presentation about how people learn.
The day started well with our team being one of the first out on the robot competition board and showing off their hard work completing four of the ten challenges. Throughout the day the girls competed in different elements of the competition, showing off their talents of teamwork, collaboration and determination. After three robot runs the programming was such a success that the girls not only made it to the quarter and semi-finals but the final. They were narrowly beaten by another team but an amazing effort was put in by everyone. Although we came second overall out of sixteen teams the girls’ robot won the best design, securing a Lego trophy for their hard work. The day out was a roaring success for everyone involved and this would have not been possible without the supporters from Proctor & Gamble, so a big thank you to Graham, Shirley and Ian who supported the team in the design and programming of the robot.
