LEGO Core Value Champions!

On Tuesday 22nd June our Year 8 STEM pupils took part in the regional FIRST LEGO League Challenge: Core Values. The team had been set a real-world challenge which was to get active. The competition was completed on line.

The robotics part of the competition involved the team designing and programming a LEGO robot to complete tasks. The students worked out a solution to getting active by designing an app which took participants on walks around the community.

The team competed, shared their knowledge with the judges and used their robot to complete the challenges set. They were amazing and won the core value trophy!

Congratulations to Logan Williams, Kailum Walters, William Drew, Finlay Woodland, Sydney Heywood, Jenson Ellis and Tayne Lewis-Bale

The ST team are very proud of their achievement and plans are already in place for next years competition.

FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge is a global STEM programme for teams of young people, to encourage an interest in real world themes and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. Young people work together to explore a given topic and to design, build and program an autonomous LEGO® robot to solve a series of missions.

Whilst competing, the teams need to demonstrate the FIRST® LEGO® League Core Values which include innovation, teamwork and inclusion. Being respectful and having a great time are central to what makes FIRST® LEGO® League so special.

The FIRST® Core Values should guide everything a team does. It is very important that coaches and teams understand them and can demonstrate to the judges that the team embodies them.
