Well done to the twelve children, staff and parents who attended the Robot Rumble on Thursday 22nd March. The team from Sutton CP was one of six from local schools and it took place at Settle Primary School. Robot Rumble was judged by a team of 3 independent judges, including a Rolls Royce STEM Ambassador.
In the first event, My Robot’s Got Talent, Willow’s robot won the KS1 category and Jack’s robot was the runner up. Plans and models of robots were taken on the day to be judged. The robot had to be designed so that it would have a positive impact on society through exploration, discovery or environmental welfare. Stephen’s robot (designed to help the homeless by bringing them food, water and blankets) was awarded the KS2 prize.
The KS1 one team, made up of Angel, Fin, Nathan and Maisie won the next event, Strictly Come Robot. This event required the young team to program their robots so that they danced to a piece of music. Their synchronized routine was great and clearly impressed the judges.
Finally, a big thank you goes to all the parents who helped make the robots and the children & staff at Settle Primary School who organised the event and made Sutton CP feel very welcome.
