Lego Mindstorms Competition success

Congratulations to the JGHS team who entered the First Lego League Scottish Championship at the University of Edinburgh on Saturday.

The team worked hard for several weeks to program a Lego Mindstorms robot to autonomously tackle a variety of challenges relating to this year’s them of Nature’s Fury which looked at how technology can help prepare for, and recover from, a variety of natural disasters.  The team also gave a technical presentation to the judges, explaining how they tackled the challenges, and gave a presentation outlining their ideas for a novel means of using technology in a real life disaster situation.

Not all of those who worked on the preparation for the competition were able to attend on Saturday, but the team won through to the Semi-final stage where they were knocked out by the eventual Scottish Championship winning team.

It was a nail-biting finish, and a most exciting and enjoyable day.  The team performed brilliantly and were a credit to themselves and our school.  Well done.
