A message from our incredible UMS LEGO EXPRESS ROBOTICS TEAM. There are six members of this team comprised of Grades 7 & 8 students. We are grateful to our amazing teacher mentors. As a team, we have been preparing for the First Lego League Competition in December. We have been developing an alternative material for packaging for the innovation project.
We tested out mycelium, seed paper and coconut shell fibres; after our tests, we decided that seed paper would be the best option. It can be planted in the ground and be used to grow fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. We have also been working on our robot missions. The theme this year is ‘cargo’, so we have been designing and programming our robot to complete various missions on the mission mat. We have also been demonstrating our core values by completing team leadership activities throughout the school and showing gracious professionalism. We are very excited about the upcoming competition! Stay tuned for further updates on our progress.
