The STEM club have been working tirelessly making final preparations for the “Robotics Challenge North West Finals” at Preston College on Wednesday 3rd May 2023. During the competition, the robot creations will have to carry out a variety of tasks, including climbing a ramp, opening a gate, moving a variety of objects whilst avoiding numerous objects within a short time scale, as well as performing some dance moves. The competition also involves a separate speed challenge and delivering a presentation about the projects.
Since September, the team have worked collaboratively, sharing out responsibilities and the projects have come together over the last few weeks with impressive results.
Eden, Vidhya and Ruby in Year 9 have been busy building and making modifications to the robot, while Sophie in Year 9 has taken the lead with programming. All challenges have been overcome and the robot can now complete the challenges set due to the diligence and hard work of this fantastic team.
Our year 8 team members include Lauren and Uswa who have focused their efforts on incorporating gears to their robot to increase speed, along with modifying components to maximise the speed of their robot. Jemima and Ruby have done a splendid job researching, writing and editing the presentation.
Good luck to the teams on the 3rd of May. I’m sure that they will have lots of success. They should all be very proud of their achievements.
