A Huge Congratulations to the St Mary's STEM club who WON the Regional Final of the 2020 LEGO Robotics challenge at West Lancashire College in Skelmersdale. The event is supported by many industrial partners including: The Royal Air Force, Rolls Royce, Network Rail and Tomorrows Engineers. The purpose of the event was to encourage more students to enter the world of engineering and other STEM related industries.
On the day students had to complete a number of activities. These included team tasks, presentations, interviews, a LEGO drag race and the LEGO table top challenge. Throughout the day the team worked well, consistently gaining high scores and managed to win a trophy in the table top challenge. The last award for the day was given to the overall winners of the event who would then be invited to represent the North West in the National Final held in the NEC in Birmingham. Despite stiff competition from eight other schools St Mary’s managed to WIN the Regional Final and took home the trophy. They will be competing again on the 13th March at the NEC against 51 other schools to try and become National Champions.
As ever, the team were very well mannered and mature. I would like to thank the organisers of the event for giving us the opportunity to attend and would also like to congratulate the students who took part. The students involved were:
