Lego League CompetitionPosted on: 24/01/2020
Our very own Lego Engineers travelled to Plymouth on 24th January to take part in the Lego League competition supported by The Institution of Engineering and Technology. The Lego League is a global science and technology competition for teams of young people, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers.
The day started with practise sessions, held in the main arena, which were swift and intense. Following these sessions, students presented their Lego robot design, demonstrating how they had planned, designed, tested and finally determined the robot they were going to use in the competition. Then, having competed against
a number of regional teams, the day finished with students presenting their environmental research to Naval Officers, experts in the fields of robotics and computer coding as well as college lecturers. The pressure of competing can certainly be nerve-wracking but the HDS team kept their cool, presenting their polished pitch with ease.
There was strong competition throughout with awards presented for performance, design and overall presentation. The HDS engineers brought home the ‘Design Award’ for the 4th year running! Well done team!
