VEX Robot League
A group of Year 4 and 5 pupils are competing in a VEX Robot League against other local schools. Each half term a challenge is published on Inspire 2 Learn's website (https://inspire2learnblog.com/vex-league/).
Challenge 1 - Slalom and egg challenge. The children had to build the robot to travel down a slalom course, pick up a raw egg and return to the start line. The next child will then return down the course and place the egg down. The course had to be completed twice.
First Lego League
Every year a team of children from Y5 and 6 take part in the worldwide First Lego League competition where they are required to build a robot to carry out several missions and research and present a solution to a problem. Alongside this there is a trophy available for Core Values (teamwork, encouraging others, etc).
St Joseph's were the proud winners of the Core Value trophy in 2014.
