Bourne Academy has won the regional heat of the First LEGO League (FLL) competition, beating 21 other schools to the top.
As part of the 2014 World Class Challenge in the global science and technology competition, the BA Builders had to redesign how they gather knowledge and skills in the 21st century, and offered the judges a solution on ‘how to learn about binary’. They also built a robot to be assessed on innovative design, programming and robustness at the regional heat at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford.
Head of computer science, Antoaneta Moorfoot, who coordinated the event said, “What makes this award special is that we entered the competition for the first time and were the winners. I am extremely proud of their hard work and excellent team spirit!” Bourne Academy now goes forward to the national final to be held at Loughborough University next February, with the winner taking part in the World Festival in USA in April.
