The school’s Lego Robotics Team, The Robot Rebels, competed against 90 other teams from all aroundthe world last week. The team were judged in all four aspects of the competition: their project on puppy farming, team work, the design of their robot and the robot’s performance on the themed ‘animal allies’ mat.
Although the robot didn’t perform to its maximum potential the team scored highly across all aspects of the competition and were rewarded with a prestigious judge’s award in recognition of this and the fact that it was their first year competing.
As well as competing, the team enjoyed mixing with the other teams and swapping gifts. They also got to attempt a giant inflatable obstacle course, watch the UK film premiere of the in-
spirational film ‘Dream Big’, visit the Roman Baths and do a walking treasure hunt of Bath city centre. The highlight was probably the science show followed by the pit party on Friday evening.
The team were a lot younger then the vast majority of other teams, and showed great teamwork and resilience despite the hot weather and long days and were a credit to the school.
