A school in Bedfordshire is hosting a competition to see who can build the best robot.
Students at the Goldington Academy in Bedford are taking part in the challenge, which is run and sponsored by Lockheed Martin and aims to get more youngsters into the STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and maths.
The teams have to manoeuvre the robot they built, moving cones around an arena and into certain positions. The more cones put into place, the higher their score.
Team Girlbot used to be an all-female team when it was set up, now they have both boys and girl members.
Those who are top at the end of the day also get the opportunity to compete at a national level.
