    On Wednesday 22nd February the first Joyce Frankland Robotics Team consisting of six year 7 girls and four year 8 boys travelled to West Sussex College to compete in the Tomorrows Engineers LEGO Robotics Regional heat. They had been preparing for the competition every Monday after school since November. When they got there they were competing against 11 other schools from the East of England all of which had students older than them in.

    All schools created an excellent atmosphere at the competition. On the day they had to complete for challenges. Two challenges included a presentation, one about Robot design and the other about how robots can help explore space. Another challenge was set on the day and assessed their team work as a group. The final challenge was robot programming and building.

    As a team they excelled in every challenge and romped through to win the whole event! As such they have now been invited to the national final on Friday 17th March at the Big Bang Science Fair in Birmingham.

    Well done team and good luck in the final!
