Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge: Lego Mindstorms Kits!
Schools across the country are invited to take on a robotics challenge that will see student teams involved in ‘space missions’. Teamwork, robots, design, research, fun and loads of LEGO® are all part of the mix, as are real-world challenges, teacher support and some great prizes!
Are you ready to take your students on a journey of exploration?
This isn’t a one-off challenge. It’s a curriculum-linked programme that sees students (11-14s) working together in teams to solve real-world engineering, technology and computing challenges.
Student teams across the country learn how to build, program and control autonomous LEGO robots to complete a series of short, exciting aviation missions using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets. From speed racing to humanitarian aid, they’ll demonstrate their skills at challenges held around the country.
The journey starts in school. The challenge events are the culmination of a ten-week extra-curricular or in-school programme where students learn how to design and control their robots to complete the aviation challenges. It’s all with the help of Tomorrow’s Engineers structured activity plans and learning software – they also provide training and equipment!
The challenge could take your team all the way from regional heats to the national final!
Get involved! Applications for the 2017/2018 Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge are open from now until 12 July. Click here to apply…
