Make It Work Robotics Challenge

We are so proud of our Year 9 students who reached the semi-final in Liverpool City Region's 'Make It Work Robotics Challenge' for schools which is supported by LCR Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram.‚Äč

Lucas, Tiwa, George and Joe in Year 9, used their outstanding knowledge and skills; working effectively as part of a team to take on this robotic challenge. Their resilience and hard work paid off as they made it into the semi-finals. Congratulations!

Simon Reid, Sector Manager for Advanced Manufacturing, Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) said: “As the City Region’s economy continues to improve, more companies are facing a shortage of skilled workers, especially in Advanced Manufacturing. Now more than ever our future depends on a workforce with the necessary talents and training for the jobs of today and tomorrow, and the best way to ensure a steady supply of workers is through education. That is why initiatives such as the Make It Work Challenge are so important; they provide an opportunity for our young people to really engage with the possibility of working in this sector and hopefully encourage them that Advanced Manufacturing is an exciting and rewarding career.”
