Yr 8 Students Compete in First Lego League Challenge
On Sunday 4th November two teams of Yr 8 math students represented CVC at the First Lego League Regional Challenge, held at Cecil Andrews College.
First Lego League (FLL) is a competition catering for upper-primary and lower-secondary school students. Every year, teams of up to 10 students build, program and compete with a robot, while also learning about a modern problem in science and engineering and developing solutions for it. The entire competition for the year is based around one of these themes: Past themes include natural disasters, senior citizens, food health & safety, climate change, medical science, and nanotechnology.
Tournaments are run with the feel of a sporting event, and teams compete like crazy while having the time of their lives.
This year 34 teams from Perth schools competed in Lego Robotics matches and were judged on their team Robot Design, FIRST Core Values and Into Orbit Research Project.
Congratulations to team 'CVC2 - Astro' who came 7th in the Robot Challenge and won the prestigious Core Values Award for Teamwork on the day, for displaying FLL Core Values including Gracious Professionalism and Cooperation encouraging high quality work, unqualified kindness, respect and learning.
