The Competition

We have been invited to particpate in the London IBM/ CLC Robo Challenge on 25th March 2017. The event will take place at IBM headquarters on the Southbank (It’s very nice – Tim, Mrs Harrison and I have been to Summer School there).

Our amazing team of 4 girls and 3 boys comprises Ellie, Estelle, Isabella, Klaidi, Luca, Lulu & Yusef.

Before then we have lots of work to do. We need to understand how to program our Lego NXT robot and will be given some specific challenges nearer the time, with some on-the-day challenges as well. Team work will be important!

Here are the challenges (one boy & one girl take part as a team in each challenge):

  1. Best Dressed Robot
  2. Strictly Robo Dancing
  3. Robo Race
  4. Presentation – “The IBM Robo Challenge”
  5. The ‘X Factor’
  6. Teamwork
