Ysgol Eirias Engineering pupils head "Into Orbit"

Four Ysgol Eirias students, Michael Kotlarek (Y10), Ryan Clarke (Y8), Owain Allpress and Jack Harvey (Y7) from the Lego Engineering Club were involved with the North Wales heats for ‘Into Orbit’, this year’s First Lego League competition on Wednesday 23rd January.

16 schools from across North Wales were involved in the competition which was held at Ysgol John Bright.

In spite of being a very young and inexperienced team the boys did exceptionally well with some brilliant ‘on the fly’ programming being done to get their robot out of tight spots and real teamwork shown.

All in all a great day which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone!
