Midlothian VEX Challenge 2017

Midlothian VEX Challenge 2017

Fourteen teams from Midlothian’s mi:SPACE project came to Newbattle Community High School to participate in Midlothian’s VEX Challenge.

The Midlothian Challenge required teams to control and program robots that they had designed in school to carry out a series of tasks. All of our schools showed fantastic skill and team work when taking part in each challenge. Pupils worked together to problem solve, write computer code and perfect their robot design throughout the event.

Bonnyrigg PS won the programming challenge, Saint Luke’s won the controller challenge and Newtongrange won the design challenge.

The children also enjoyed experimenting with our new 360 degree RICOH THETA camera. The team photos can be viewed below.

Well done to all of those involved!
