Newburgh Knights - Lego Competition
On 17th December Newburgh sent a team of Year 5/6 children to Loughborough University to partake in a Lego competition. They competed against nine other schools who were mostly 14- 16 year olds! The children had to design, make and program a Lego robot which would complete different challenges on a board. They also had to present their unique research topic. The Newburgh Knights designed an App which would help you learn to speak another language interactively through a platform game. The team presented this idea then answered questions about the apps development.
After three rounds of the robot game the team placed 3rd out of ten teams and 1st for their research project winning themselves a trophy.
We are all very proud of the team’s dedication and attitude throughout even when things went wrong and would like to congratulate them on their success!
On Monday 20th October Newburgh Primary School was live on ITV Good Morning!
