Places at the local tournaments will go fast, so register your teams quickly to avoid disappointment.

The new challenge will be released on 1st August and details will be available on this website. The challenge sets (mat and missions) will be despatched in the new school term from mid- August onwards. They will not be despatched to a school that is still on summer holiday, therefore the majority of schools in England will receive their challenge sets in the first week of September. Scottish and Irish schools start their terms earlier.

Details about this season’s challenge available from the Challenge web page on 1st August

First Lego League Jr

We held our First Lego League Jr Expo last week at The Word.  Seven teams from around the North East came along and had a fabulous time showing off their engineering and programming skills.  Teams also researched how we use water and thought of ways of making it more efficient.

We asked teams what their favourite part of First Lego League was – the answer was “that we all worked together and we learnt how to build up loads of confidence”.  Other people thought meeting people was the best bit, and explaining things to teachers came high up.

Well done for achieving these awards:

Amazing Movement Award – Aquabricks Boyz

Construction and Innovation Award – BG Fire Fighters

Complexity and Decoration – Water Warriors

Effort and Learning Award – Aqua Adventurers

Next year our theme is all about space, the ideas will be out of this world!
