CrumbleBot Taster Day for Year 5

CrumbleBot Taster Day for Year 5

On Thursday 12 October, 15 of our Year 5 girls participated in a 'CrumbleBot Taster Day' organised by BT Education.

They spent the day at BT Headquarters in Martlesham Heath, near Ipswich, and took part in a series of practical sessions focusing on programming ‘Crumble’ Robots.  The day culminated in a team competition, during which the girls put their new programming skills to the test against teams from other schools. This was one of a number of similar sessions leading up to the ‘UK National RoboCupJunior Rescue Line Tracking Championships’ in June.

The teams had approximately two hours to program their robot to compete against other teams’ robots and track around a circuit following a black line, as quickly as possible.  The competition was contested by 40 teams from schools across East Anglia.

Many congratulations to our Year 5 team who finished in 3rd Place overall.  We are now looking forward to the next stage of the competition, which will take place during February.
