Army STEM workshops

OPERATION DISASTER RELIEF

A number of our S2 pupils were involved in a STEM activity lead my members of the British Army over the 2nd & 3rd of March working with Lego Mindstorms – Lego Mindstorms EEV3 are programmable robots based on Lego Building blocks.

Army STEM activity – STEM skills are vital when the British Army deploys around the world and are never more crucial than when disaster strikes! In this activity, pupils will join the Army’s Engineers, Medics and Logisticians in deploying to a remote part of the world which has been hit by a destructive earthquake. Learning how to build, programme and operate their LEGO™ Mind-storm robot pupils will use their robot to undertake a series of engineering and logistical challenges in order to achieve their mission and deliver life-saving humanitarian aid to the local people.
