Team Endurance Lego 'Into Orbit' Project

We love it when people bring us exciting ideas and Mr Walters has brought us a real cracker! The Lego 'Into Orbit' project is an exciting and stimulating multi-national competition in which children compete to build and program robots to solve real-world scientific and engineering problems. There is also a project that runs alongside this to research and find solutions to these problems using the children's own creativity and problem solving skills. The core skills that this project aims to promote within the children are team work, communication, problem solving, design, engineering and computational thinking / computer programming. If that wasn't awesome enough, the project utilises Lego products (such as Lego 'Mindstorms')  to develop these essential skills!

A huge thank you to Mr Walters for bringing this idea to us, his enthusiasm and for generously devoting his Tuesday afternoons to running the project with us in school.
