On Saturday 22nd Feb the members of Lego Engineering Club travelled to Bristol to compete in the England and Wales First Lego League national championships, a competition where teams build and programme a robot to attempt challenges. The competition was had 66 teams and was so big that it had it’s own opening ceremony. None of us had ever been to the Nationals before and we didn’t really know what to expect. We came up against some very challenging opponents but we improved on our regional finals score. We ended up finishing 25th out of the 66 teams which we were all extremely proud of. We all had a fantastic time and there were also many lessons to be learned but we all came away thinking that we had achieved something amazing.
