On Saturday 18th January, Presdales hosted its first VEX robotics tournament. On the run up to the day the girls had worked extremely hard to prepare their robots for the competition, building through lunchtimes, staying after school and even taking robots home to work on. All the members of the robotics club should be extremely proud of what they have achieved.
16 teams attended the tournament representing John Warner, Greig City Academy, Henrietta Barnett, Nobel and Presdales School. With places for the national finals at stake the teams fought hard, the overall winners were from John Warner School and Greig City Academy.
We were very lucky to have an excellent judging panel on the day, Jamie D’Ath (MBDA), Steve Green (Lockheed Martin) and Parent Adrian Hughes. A special thank you to the team of volunteers that helped set up and supported throughout the event, especially to Mr Bedwell and Dr Gale. Well done to Megan Hughes (Year 7) for being awarded the volunteer of the tournament.
