EEP Robotics Challenge

A group of our Young Engineers travelled to Leuchars Station (Formerly RAF
Leuchars), to compete in the EEP Robotics Challenge Regional Heats on Tuesday 17th
May. The team had built and programmed an EV3 Lego Mindstorm to carry out
several challenges during lunchtimes as part of their extra-curricular club.
The day involved completing these challenges as well as a teamwork challenge.

The Team did very well to get to the heats and won the Teamwork Challenge,
impressing the judges on how well they worked together as a team – Well Done!!

As the competition was based in a British Army base and hosted by REME
(Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) they got a tour of the facility and
saw some of the equipment and machines in the various hangers. They also got
the opportunity to speak to the personnel about their roles in the Army.
