Children from schools across Kent have been competing in a robot-building contest at the University of Kent. Their task was to construct a robot and use a computer program to make it do a series of tasks, under the watchful eye of a judging panel.
David Johns went along to watch the action. He spoke to University lecturer Fred Barnes and judge Gaby Roch.
