Event description

Description

Following last year's spectacular event where 40+ pupils and 9 schools participated we will be running a similar event on the 3rd July 2017 at Stoke Park School, Coventry from 9.30am - 2.30pm.

Last year, all pupils, staff and visitors were totally engaged in this amazing event; when students were not competing they were modifying their robots and working extremely well as team players. The many school staff who popped in during their breaks were extremely excited by the level of engagement and the buzz around the very full school hall. The final was very exciting and one teacher could not bear to watch his team.....the score went 1-0,1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-2 and 3-3...so after this the first to score won!

We are going to run the VEX Swept Away Challenge again as pupils have participated well, had great fun and performed brilliantly at previous events. It’s been great to see the teams' knowledge, understanding and confidence grow through the competition.

This year, each school team will consist of up to 6 from year 7 to year 10 students (please ensure that most pupils are from KS3) and a supervising adult. The structure of the day will be based around the following format:

09.30-10.00 Teams arrive and get set in 'pits'

10.00-10.15 Brief introduction, housekeeping

10.15-13.15 Competition matches (full schedule provided on the day)

13.15-13.45 Lunch break (may be used as overflow time for matches)

13.45-14.15 Final match to determine champion team

14.15-14.30 Closing comments and prize giving

14.30 Schools depart


If there is enough interest we may well run an IQ robotics competition simultaneously.

The students will need to bring their own lunches. Staff will be provided with a sandwich and hot drinks throughout the day
