Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Space Challenge

After competing in our internal robotics challenge, Evie, Pippa, Talia, Rachel, Lisea, Emily H, Emily W, Molly M, Molly C and Heidi from years 7 & 8 worked as a team in the Tomorrow's Engineers Robotics Space Challenge event at Winchester Science Centre.

The event consisted of 4 main sections:

  • They designed, built using Lego and programmed their robot called 'Scrutor' (Latin for explore) to complete 7 different space challenges under timed conditions.
  • They completed a teamwork challenge and built a structure from the Science Centre in 15 minutes using only newspaper and Sellotape - they constructed a working crane.
  • They answered a series of grilling questions from robotics engineers from Kinetica about their own robot design and programming.
  • And finally they researched and prepared a presentation on 'How humans can survive in space' and presented this to NASA scientists - followed by answering questions on the spot on the topic, which they won the regional award for.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
