FIRST Tech Challenge

Cambridgeshire is to host the Regional Championship on 7th February for the “More than a Robots” challenge which encourages school teams to work together with each member having a role to play. These range from Mechanical Engineer to Financial Manager and include roles such as specialist in social media. Each team is supported by a fully trained Mentor taken from a wide industrial background. The robot is simply the campfire and it is everything that happens around the campfire that is important.

With 80 teams taking part in this region and over 180 nationally this is an opportunity for students to gain a valuable insight into STEM making it less intimidating, more accessible and diverse – using robots and inspirational role models from industry to fuel a talent pipeline of future innovators.

Whilst the opportunity to take part this year has passed you may want to consider this as an opportunity for the future.
