Writhlington winners at First Lego League competition 2012 - November 2012

The Writhlington team known as “Writlightening” is celebrating winning the trophy for core values at a regional technology competition.

On the 27th November a group of 9 students visited the HP labs in Bristol to take part in the first lego league south west competition 2012. The day started with an introduction to the event and a dance on the stage, even Mr Whittaker danced the YMCA. The team then presented the research project to the judges, watched the other groups in the area, and listened to their ideas. After all the presentations were given the robot competition began. The team completed 3 rounds, with the best score being used. The team scored 115 in the first round, 75 in the second, and 140 in the last achieving 12th place. During a visit from the judges the team discussed the robot design, and justified why it was designed in that way. Half way through the day the team was given balloons and asked to create something: the balloon hat was very popular, and a balloon parade was held to show of all the creative ideas.

The teams then gathered in the main competition hall for the results, where the Writhlington Team won the “Core Values” trophy, awarded for the group that worked best as a team and were courteous towards the other teams.
