EEP Robotics Challenge 

A group of our Year 9 students, who are involved in the robotics club attended the North London regional, EEP robotics competition held at the RAF museum in Hendon. The Robotics challenge is a curriculum-linked programme that sees students working together in teams to solve real engineering, technology and computing challenges.

Student teams learn how to research, design, plan, build, program and control autonomous LEGO robots to complete a series of short, exciting aviation missions using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets. From speed racing to humanitarian aid.

Teams present their own solutions to a contemporary engineering problem – developed with support from the Royal Air Force and Rolls-Royce – gaining feedback on their work from the engineering community. The challenge will open up potential new careers to our students and help put their school learning into context.

There are three parts to the Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge.

  1. The Robot Challenge consists of a series of aviation missions. Teams try to complete as many as possible under time pressure using the unique robots that they’ve built.
  2.  Robot Design, This can be compared to a real-world engineering design review. After completing the aviation missions, students present the software and physical designs they’ve created for the challenge to judges.
  3. Research Project, Students research, design and present their own solution to a contemporary engineering problem faced by STEM professionals in the aviation industry.

Our 12 of our Year 9's took part in the North London regional, EEP robotics competition held at the RAF museum in Hendon. The challenge was to build and code a robot to solve 7 different engineering problems.

The Park High team won the robot challenge trophy. Congratulations to our Year 9 Robotics Team Hetal, Codrin, Kyriacos, Siddharth, Sathujan, Chau, Akash, Sabeera, Jessica, Umika, Abdullah & Mohammed
