VEX IQ Challenge
On Friday 18th January Mr. Lyons’ class made the short trip across to the DKIT to compete in the inaugural North East Regionals of the VEX IQ Challenge. This fantastically run event afforded the pupils the opportunity to see STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), brought to life. The class had spent the last number of months assembling and modifying the class bot, nicknamed ‘Chewy’. On the day, competing against eleven schools from all around the North East, the class performed exceptionally, finishing mid table and fourth overall in the team challenges. The class had a wonderful day and have gained a wealth of experience which I am sure they will pass on to next year’s competitors.
