STEM Club – Robotics Challenge
March 15 @ 7:30 am - 8:00 pm
Our STEM Club have been invited to compete in the first round of the First Tech Challenge at the Concorde Conference Centre in Manchester on Friday 15th March 2019.
We will be travelling to the competition by coach and will be leaving school no later than 07:30 to ensure that we arrive on time for the competition as the journey is expected to take up to 2 hours depending on traffic. Students will be expected to wear school uniform but may bring any additional t-shirts or ‘mascot wear’ that they have produced for the competition. Students will also need to bring a coat and a packed lunch/snacks for the day. If your child is entitled to free school meals please contact me at the earliest convenience so that this can be arranged with kitchen staff prior to the trip.
Students have been completing weekly challenges during the design and building stages and have accrued an ‘e-wallet’ which has successfully covered the cost of transport which means there is no additional cost for yourself.
The estimated end time of the competition is 18:00 so we are therefore estimated to arrive back at school between 19:40 and 20:00. On the day, texts will be sent home as we depart the venue should the competition finish earlier than scheduled. Please could we ask that you complete the attached consent form and return it back to school no later than Thursday 14th March 2019 to confirm your child’s attendance on the trip and contact details of the person collecting your child.
