Storm sponsored Bath team named world champions!
A team of seven children from Bath, including students form King Edward’s and Ralph Allen schools, have beaten 20,000 teams from around the world to be named the 2013 World Science/Robotics Champions.
Having successfully competed at National level, the 11 – 15 year olds making up Bath’s ‘Team Untitled-1‘ made the trip to St Louis in America where they proved themselves to be the very best of the 80 teams that made it through to the world finals.
The seven involved in the team are Freya, Tom, Dani, Max, Joe, Rafi and Claudia. They said: “It’s the team here.. Well, we say “team”, but WORLD CHAMPIONS is more appropriate!!!!! Yes, slight shock. We have just beaten 20,000 other teams worldwide becoming number one in Lego Robotics!! Wooo!! We think it’s true because everyone’s taking our picture but we might need a pinch or two!”
Dave said: “Storm were pleased to sponsor Team Untitled-1 and we’re absolutely thrilled to hear what they’ve achieved. What an outstanding accolade for Bath – this says a lot about the quality of science and tech teaching here in the city and the enthusiasm of our youngsters. We’re really keen to continue to support competitions like this that give children the opportunity to learn more about science and engineering.”
