The King’s School, Tudor House made its first appearance in the regional First Lego League tournament (FLL).
The FLL is a school competition where teams of 10 come together to build, program and compete with Lego robots, while learning to develop solutions for modern problems centred around science and engineering. With the feel of a sporting event, teams compete to overcome theme related problems, learning valuable life skills along the way.
This year, Tudor House students spent countless hours preparing in the School’s iHub, with great anticipation for the upcoming tournament. Hosted at Bossley Park, the competition was a sight to behold as 32 teams from around NSW gathered to participate in the one of a kind competition.
Ready for anything in their self-designed and matching team shirts, the Tudor House team eagerly awaited to take on the day’s challenges. With the theme City Shapers, focusing on designing innovative solutions to problems in public spaces, the Tudorian team got to it working out how to overcome the lack of green space in urban areas. The team also took part in a lateral thinking activity, tested, refined and improved code for a robot and presented their research through a skit and oral presentation.
Calling their solution The Great Indoors, Tudorians had stellar success creating a tall tower including all the School’s renowned Kahiba experiences. The inaugural Tudor House team made the School very proud placing 6th in the robotics challenge and scored exemplary or highly commended in all aspects of the Innovation project and Teamwork activities.
Thank you to all the friends, families and students that made the first ever Lego League tournament such an unequivocal success. The students were very proud of themselves and are already thinking of how to improve for 2020!
