This year, I supported the local schools’ Robot Club to participate in the Y Factor conference, now run in association with Learning without Frontiers.
The club was started at the local junior school by a parent governor. When the children left the school, they carried on building robots in their spare time, and persuaded their secondary school to start a robot club there.
The group became national finalists, and presented in the round to a large audience at the Learning without Frontiers event in London, where they all won Nintendo DSs. Here’s the video they made as their original entry.
