Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge

Schools across the country are invited to take on a robotics challenge that will see student teams involved in ‘space missions’.

Teamwork, robots, design, discovery, fun and loads of LEGO are all part of the mix, as are real-world challenges, teacher support and some great prizes. Are you ready to take your students on a journey of exploration? 

This isn’t a one-off challenge. It’s a curriculum-linked programme that gets your students (11-14s) working together in teams (minimum size of six students per team) to solve real-world engineering, technology and computing challenges. Your student team will learn how to build, program and control autonomous LEGO robots to complete a series of short, exciting space missions using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets. From assembling the crew to launching the satellite, they’ll demonstrate the skills they’ve learned at challenge events held around the country.

You can run activities with your team outside the classroom or during lessons. The challenge could take your team all the way from regional heats to the national final!
