STEM G & T Competition

Matei (Year 10) and Niamh (Year 9) went to The University of Sheffield yesterday. They both took part in the Final of the STEM G & T competition. Both did extremely well and worked so hard during the activity.

The activity they had to do was programme a robot to perform certain tasks and go through a certain pathway. This programme was designed for undergraduate students, both students have no previous knowledge of mechanical engineering so both did wonderfully under the circumstances. At times the activity was frustrating, however both showed resilience and carried and never gave up even when there was a countdown at the end.

They both enjoyed the day and worked well within a team even interacting with students from different schools. Both students were a credit to the academy and were brilliantly behaved.
