National Finals Runners Up
27 February 2017 (by admin)
Ennerdale Engineers are the runners up at the UK and Ireland National Final 2017
Ennerdale Engineers travelled to Bristol on February 26th to take part in the UK and Ireland National Lego League Final for teams of children aged 9 to 16. A steady first two rounds in the robot performance matches saw them just outside the top 10. A stunning third round though saw them catapulted into second place with only a few more teams to go. An anxious wait was ended with he announcement at the awards ceremony that the runners up spot was theirs and as a result they have been invited to the European and International Finals where the top 100 teams from over 30,000 worldwide will gather for 4 days of competition later this year. This is a stunning achievement for any team but even more so for Ennerdale who had both the youngest team members and were from the smallest school present at the UK Final. A massive well done to the whole team who performed magnificently on the day, Europe here we come!
