Within this club, students will have the opportunity to advance their digital technology skills through the First Lego League Challenge where teams of up to 10 students build, program and compete with a robot, while also learning about a modern problem in science and engineering and developing solutions for it. The entire competition for the year is based around one of these themes: Past themes include natural disasters, senior citizens, food health & safety, climate change, medical science, and nanotechnology. During this time students will also be able to develop relationships with like-minded students while learning new skills such as coding and advancing their problem-solving skills.

If you have any questions please see Mr Giddings or your current maths teacher.

Within this club, students will have the opportunity to connect with primary schools within the community to design and create projects they require. Not only will this allow students to take a more hands-on approach to all the elements within design and technology, but it will also allow them to create greater relationships within their community. This will enable students to follow both the design and production process with someone in mind other than themselves.
