The UK has a shortage of individuals entering STEM careers. Those young people that have shown not only enthusiasm but also the commitment to develop their STEM skills should be afforded further opporunity. Alex, Sofia, Allen, Madeleine, Jacob and Kirin were amongst the 50 UK children competing alongside 50 of the highest achieving Chinese children at Sheffield University in the first UK World Educational Robotic Contest in the summer of 2018. Their high scores gained them free entry tickets to the World Finals, where children from more than 60 other countries will compete. This will be the first time that the UK has been represented in this challenging robot engineering and coding contest. Lets get off to a great start by fully supporting our teams to get there! They worked incredibly hard at training sessions leading up to the UK contest and are now working hard preparing for the finals at their weekly training sessions. Please help us to make their attendance at the World Finals possible and ensure the UK is represented.
