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:

Poppy Rayner
Lucy Gee
Jess Shovelton
Hollie Gee
Jayden Fetherston
Ben Little
Jack Patterson

Requests received during or just before school closure periods will not be able to be responded to within the one calendar month response period. This is because no one will be on site to comply with the request. As a result, it is unlikely that your request will be received during this time (and so the time period does not run until we receive the request). We may not be able to acknowledge your request during this time (i.e. until a time we receive the request) and the time period may not start until the School re-opens. The School will endeavour to comply with requests as soon as possible and will keep in communication with you as far as possible. If your request is urgent, please provide your request during term times and not during/close to closure periods.
