Robotic Challenge at Alsop High

Awesome news! Alsop High School has won the third heat of the Liverpool City Region Make It Work Robotics Challenge for schools.

This week Alsop High School joined other Liverpool schools at The City of Liverpool College to take part in the LCR Make It Work Robotics Challenge, supported by the Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram and facilitated by All About STEM.

All schools demonstrated effective teamwork, mastered the mechanics and battled hard. However, it was Alsop High School who took the Liverpool Heat title.

Mrs Philips comments:

“We had a great day at the Schools Robotic Challenge! Alsop students had so much fun and they are very excited about their next challenge. Later this month they will attend the next heat. If we win, we will be invited to the nationwide STEM event called the ‘Big Bang Project’ in Birmingham.”

Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said:

“It is brilliant to see so many young people enjoying the Make It Work Robotics Challenge. Sparking young people’s interest and enthusiasm is a vital part of getting more of them into studying Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects and subsequently into exciting and rewarding careers. That is exactly what this competition does and why we are proud to support it.”

Michelle Dow, Managing Director of All About STEM said:

“It is essential for our region’s future prosperity that young people have the skills they need and are enthused and excited to pursue them. We offer ‘in-person’ inspiration from real experts while learning real-life skills. Our events provide an interactive, exciting experience that can ignite our young people’s passion and spark their interest in STEM careers… and it’s so much fun! Our students are excited, focused and engaged, we’re so proud of them. They are all winners to us. Thank you to the Metro Mayor and the Combined Authority for their amazing support.”
