I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I have discovered new competitions to take part in if you are in KS2.
Robotics Drawing and Story Writing Competitions for Children
These two competitions are inviting UK primary schoolchildren to share their creative works inspired by all things robotic. The competitions are hosted by the EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network as part of UK Robotics Week (22nd – 28th June), a 7-day celebration of robotics science spanning hundreds of public events and activities up and down the country.
These competitions are designed for children to complete at home.
The “Once Upon a Robot” writing competition is open to all Key Stage 2 children (aged 7 - 11 years old), and challenges competition participants to write an 800-word story featuring any kind of robot their imagination can conjure. The story could take place on Earth, in space or even on another planet!
The competition will be judged by robotics experts from the ESPRC UK-RAS Network, plus award-winning writer AF Harrold, author of The Imaginary and the popular Greta Zargo series.
There are fabulous prizes on offer, including a Makeblock Programmable robot kit (courtesy of Pipebots), a Thames Komos Robotics Experiment kit (provided by Brains on Board), plus some unique and exclusive prizes courtesy of our guest judges.
The competitions close for entries on the 8th June 2020
