Budding scientists and engineers at Moreton First are building the blocks to their future as they prepare to enter the FIRST® LEGO® League competition.

Moreton First pupils are taking on the global and UK-wide competition where they will be required to participate in engineering challenges to solve a real-world problem during the project.

Lorna Campbell, project lead said, “The pupils will be working in teams to research a real-life problem and then develop a solution by designing, building, testing and programming a robot using LEGO®MINDSTORMS technology and then compete against other schools on a table-top playing field.

“Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths combined with imagination and teamwork makes this a brilliant project for the pupils!

“We are all excited about the competition and using LEGO as our building blocks provides a unique perspective on the exciting opportunities that engineering presents.”

The pupils will be going to Newcastle-Under-Lyme at the end of January to compete in the regional round.
