Pupils in the senior room started on their Lego Leagues project this week. They began making all the Lego missions for the Lego Robot game which is one part of the Lego Leagues competition which involves solving a set of missions. The theme for the 2017 – 2018 research project is Hydro Dynamics where pupils will solve a real world water problem and design and build a solution. Lego Leagues are jointly run by Colmac Robotics and Galway Education Centre with the Lego Leagues competition taking place on the 3rd February 2018.
Pupils integrated technology into their work by using the ipads to look up the step-by-step technical manuals for the Lego missions. Pupils wrote a questionnaire on water usage which they hope will give them ideas for their project.
