Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge is a curriculum-linked programme, for pupils aged 11-14, and aims to see teams work together to solve real-world engineering, technology and computing challenges.
Using robotics, design and discovery, pupils learn how to build, programme and control LEGO robots to complete a series of short aviation missions, using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets.
The Archbishop Temple Engineers will compete against over 40 other schools from across the country at the Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge final at Birmingham NEC on 23 June 2022.
