We want to say a massive congratulations to Wantage C of E Primary School who secured the regional title of the 2010 Oxfordshire FIRST LEGO League champions by demonstrating exceptional innovation in the field of Biomedical Engineering.
The team of ten 9-16 year olds designed, built and programmed a LEGO robot to complete specific tasks relating to the Body Forward challenge theme. The team also presented detailed research and provided a solution to a medical problem affecting people across the world.
Wantage C of E Primary School now move on to represent Oxfordshire at the FLL UK and Ireland National Final at Loughborough University on Saturday 22nd January where they compete for the exciting opportunity to represent the UK at the World Festival in St Louis, America at the end of April 2011.
The tournament was held at Didcot Football Club on Monday 7th December, covered by BBC Oxford News. (Photograph of Terry Sweeney, RM Education CEO, presenting pupils from Wantage C of E Primary School with their trophy.)
