2016 STEM Robot Competition

The University of the Highlands and Islands invited schools from across the Highlands and islands, Moray and Argyll & Bute to register to take part in their STEM Robot Competition for the chance to win a Meccano Meccanoid Robot .

The challange was for pupils to come up with a pitch of up to eight mnutes about why their school should win a robot, explaining how it would be used to help pupils learn about Science, Technology Engineering or Maths.

The winning school on the day was Alness, closely followed by a very strong team from Kingussie. Soem schools submitted video pitches, our winners were Baltasound. Each team who got through to the final recieved a robot as a prize, with Alness recieving teh large version and a Raspberry Pi for each team member.
