On winning, RealTechBot said: “Winning the Performance Award last year in our first ever participation was an incredible feat, but coming away as overall champions this year is an amazing achievement. We are immensely grateful and extremely proud of this team of talented young ladies.”
This year’s competition is called SUPERPOWERED℠ and is all about exploring how energy is sourced, transported and consumed around the world. Teams are tasked with designing a solution to making the energy journey more efficient and making sure they have lots of fun in the process!
Lucy Owen, IET FIRST® LEGO® League Education Manager, said: “FIRST® LEGO® League allows young people to experience engineering in action. It gives students the opportunity to get hands-on experience with robotics and design innovative solutions to real world problems, all whilst bringing excitement to STEM subjects. Programming, teamwork, problem-solving and communications skills have never been so much fun and gives students an insight into the creative careers that the wonderful world of engineering offers.
“There is a great need for young people with STEM skills to fill the next generation of engineering roles and we are excited to see such bright young engineering minds in FIRST® LEGO® League.”
