Unity Grammar run a world-class Robotics program with tremendous success achieved to date. Both former Senior teams were thrilled to compete at International level in 2018. The boys’ team competed in the FIRST® Lego League Championship in Houston, Texas, a prestigious event where 108 teams from around the world competed on the world stage. The girls’ team competed at the FIRST LEGO League Estonian Open International where they were the first all-girls, all Muslim team to represent Australia on an International scale.
Unity Grammar Robotics teams finished off 2018 once again victorious with three teams excelling in multiple areas of the FIRST® Lego League National Robotics Tournament. STEM Cells X placed 3rd for Gracious Professionalism. STEM Cells Y placed 2nd for Mechanical Design and STEM Cells Z, our latest addition to the STEM Cells family, were awarded 1st place for their Project Innovative Solution Award.
Two of our teams have advanced to the 2019 International Championship where they will represent Australia at the World Festival in Houston, Texas. STEM Cells Z were also awarded the Global Innovation Award nomination that will be held in Silicon Valley, California. We are so proud of our Robotics teams and we congratulate them all on their phenomenal achievements.
What is FIRST® Lego League?
FIRST® Lego League isa powerful program that engages children in playful and meaningful learning while helping them discover the fun in science and technology. Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a problem such as food safety or recycling and are challenged to develop a solution. They must also design, build and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology to compete on a table-top playing field.
