Sheffield Girls’ launch UK World Educational Robotics competition
Earlier in the year, we were thrilled to be named as the first UK WER (World Educational Robotics) national robotics hub for primary school children. We were due to host our first regional competition on the 18th May, but unfortunately had to cancel due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In place of this, Year 5 teachers Mrs Pooley and Mrs Williams have worked hard to create a website where the competition can be hosted online instead. Any school with WER links have been invited to take part and children can access all four challenges via the website. The competition is open to other schools to apply and for two of the challenges, no WER experience is required. Every school will have their own page where they can share their pupils' work.
You can access the UK WER competition website here: https://sites.google.com/she.gdst.net/wer/home
If you have pupils wishing to take part or any questions about WER (including future possibilities of equipment loan, enrichment days or training), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and put FAO Lucy Williams and Dawn Pooley in the subject heading.
The deadline for entries is 8th June 2020 with the final results being published on the 15th June. We're really excited to see the entries and celebrate the WER learning online!
