Skills put to the test in robot battle

Students battled it out with their high-tech friends as part of a regional robot contest.

St Helena School hosted the event, and about 20 teams took part from across East Anglia and London.

The worldwide event, run by VEX IQ and supported by Rapid Electronics, is for students in Years 5 to 8.

Senior science technician at the school, William James, said: “A lot of schools in the area are able to teach robotics thanks to Rapid Electronics, they have provided a number of free robot kits over the years.

“There is a new VEX game which is released every year and the students have to build robots to play those particular games.”
