The Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge invites schools across the country to take their students on a journey of exploration.
A curriculum-linked programme involves student teams learning how to build, program and control autonomous LEGO robots to complete a series of short, exciting "aviation missions". Using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets they demonstrate skills they've learned at challenge events held around the country.
Teams will research, design, plan, implement and present their own solution to a contemporary scientific problem - developed with support from the Royal Air Force and Rolls-Royce - gaining feedback on their work from professional engineers and scientists.
The challenge opens up potential new careers to students and helps put their school learning into context.
The finals of the challenge take place at The Big Bang Fair.
