LEGO!!! The Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge has landed
You’re invited to take part in the Tomorrow’s Engineers Robotics Challenge and see your student teams involved in ‘space missions’.
Challenge, discovery, fun (plus loads of LEGO®) are all part of the mix, along with real-world challenges, teacher support and some stellar prizes.
It’s a curriculum-linked programme that gets your students (11-14s) working together in teams to solve real-world engineering, technology and computing challenges.
Teams learn how to build and program LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 robots to complete a series of short, exciting space missions. From assembling the crew to launching the satellite, they’ll demonstrate the skills they’ve learned at challenge events held around the country.
The journey starts in your school though with the help of structured activity plans and learning software, TE provide you with training and equipment.
Your team will research, design and present their own solution to a contemporary scientific problem – developed by LEGO Education with NASA.
Start your students on a journey of exploration. Take part in the Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge!
