Team win Lego League Challenge Award
11th February 2022
A team of Year 5 and 6 children were selected to take part in Lego League 2022- Cargo Connect Challenge. After weeks of preparation from our team, we went to The Village Hotel in Newcastle to compete in the challenge with other schools from Northumberland and Newcastle.
As part of the competition we were judged in four areas: robot game, robot design, innovation project and core values. To prepare for the robot games we had to design, build and programme our robot to complete tasks to deliver cargo. After conducting lots of research, we chose to focus on air pollution from cargo for our innovation project and presented our solution of increasing the number of electric vehicles to a judging panel, where we also had to answer questions from the judges. Throughout the whole project, we used our core values which were: discovery, innovation, impact, teamwork, inclusion and fun. We each took on a role during the project:
Adi: creative designer and communicator builder
Hannah: builder and researcher
Harrison: project manager, mission strategist and coder
Ewan: materials manager
Blake: communicator and builder
James: strategist and builder
George: communicator and builder
Erica: builder and coder
Jack: coder and researcher
Joseph: coder and researcher
Kurt: team captain
We all had an amazing time and are very proud to have won the award for our robot design and to have been in the final of the robot games!
