We were recently thrilled to hear that a bid submitted by our Science Department had been successful in winning £3000 worth of Lego Mindstorms for the school!
The Lego Mindstorms Education EV3 sets can be built in to a range of different robots which can then be programmed using special Lego software. Our kits came with the additional Space Challenge content pack for out of this world scenarios!
We were privileged to also have been selected as the host school for the training session; dozens of teachers from schools around the UK (which had also made successful bids for Lego) attended the session, which taught them how to use Lego Mindstorms to integrate science, technology, engineering and maths concepts into their lessons.
Castle Rock students will shortly have the opportunity to try out the Lego for themselves, learning about robotics and eventually planning a mission to Mars!
