Lego NXT

The Lego Mindstorm Challenge is a competition for a group of up to 10 pupils aged 9+. The group will need to initially research a project, provided by the Lego Challenge and then design and construct a buggy to complete an obstacle course.

This year’s Lego challenge is called Body Forward in which children will explore the cutting-edge world of Biomedical Engineering to discover innovative ways to repair injuries, overcome genetic predispositions, and maximize the body’s potential, with the intended purpose of leading happier and healthier lives. This could be used as a half term project for a whole class, with a competition to see who will represent the school, or run as an after school activity.

The competition is open for registration now and will cost £150 per team. For this you will receive the competition challenge pieces and the competition course mat.

The first step will be to register. This can be done on the First Hand Technology website; http://firsthandtechnology.org.uk/ or via the Stem Education email address;  stemeducation@bath.ac.uk
