Robotics team stand tall at RAF Cosford

Design and Technology Robotics team stand tall at RAF Cosford

On Tuesday 4 th February, the Design & Technology Robotics team set out to RAf Cosford just after
6 am. The students were a team from Year 9, 10 and 11 who have worked tirelessly over the last few
months to build and programme a robot to the exacting First Tech Challenge Specification. Tensions
were high when they arrived as the team went from challenge to challenge collecting points which
saw them through to the semi-finals by tea time. It is with great pride that we announce that the de
Ferrers Design & Technology team came sixth out of twenty-six schools AND won a special award for
‘Best Design and Engineering Log Book’. This huge achievement means the team is going to London
in March for the next round in the competition. Congratulations to the whole team.
