S1 STEM Challenge

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Curriculum

On Thursday 26th May, 30 S1 students undertook a STEM Challenge lead by Capt Scott Lacey and LCpl Brian Gorman from the Royal Engineers.

The 8 teams of students had to build a complex, motorised and remote operated robot, then, using tablets, they had to program the robot to try and navigate around a complex maze

The S1 students were excellent and engaged straight away, moving on through the build process quickly so they could tackle the maze and be first to get to the end.

Capt Lacey and LCpl Gorman were full of praise for the enthusiasm and behaviour of the Charleston students.

The session ended with a Q&A session with some searching questions from students about life in the Army, and its role in the world. This shows how much our young people actually think and engage with the wider questions about our society’.
