Before half term a group of Greenfield Community College students were invited to the VEX Robotics Regional Skyrise competition. The students, who are part of the school’s thriving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) club, travelled to Nissan’s test track facility to compete against other local clubs.

 

It was a fantastic day for the students, who qualified in 8th place out of 14, making it into the quarterfinals. This is Greenfield’s first year at the competition so they were really pleased with their result!

 

Over the course of the day and the competition the students had the opportunity to test their impressive problem solving skills. They had to engineer solutions to the challenges they were presented with – with great results! The students had a great time at the event, enjoying the opportunity to develop their STEM skills further, with one commenting “It’s exciting to take part in a competition for STEM!”
