Over the last few weeks, the ICT department have been running a competition - "Robots of the Future".
Y7 and Y8 students were invited to design a robot which could help support our society either now or in the future. Over 100 entries were submitted and from this, the ICT team shortlisted down to four.
The four finalists were:
Joely Thompson Year 7 BARTS
Luke Murphy Year 7 BARTS
Aidan Hillman Year 8 BEDE
Ben Folkes Year 7 ROLLESTON
The finalists presented their design to a panel of judges. All four did an excellent presentation, explaining their designs and why their robot would be useful.
The judges had a very hard decision deciding on a winner and after a lot of deliberation they gave first place to Luke Murphy (pictured above) and his design of a sustainable wind turbine robot.
Well done to all students that took part and congratulations to Luke. All finalists received a certificate and Luke won a £15 Amazon voucher.
