We sent two teams to the EDF Hinkley Point C STEM Challenge. 12 teams attended this event held at Cranbrook Education Campus, to design, build and “road test” a robot.
Clyst Vale 1 Team (Joe, Eve, India, Ben) engineered an ambitious robot, which was upset by ambient light conditions and so unable to perform at its best, but Clyst Vale 2 (Matt, Ellie, Jim, Callum plus one) reached the final, winning their group of 6 by a single point, with a score of 73. They were up against an impressive St Peter’s robot, very much the favourite, which unfortunately failed to complete the required task in three attempts. The Clyst Vale robot worked first time so the team (pictured) we won a trophy and Amazon vouchers !
