A team of Bolton School boys were runners-up in the National
Final of the Toyota Technology Challenge!
Nearly 400 schools entered Toyota's robotic design competition
nationally and the boys won the north regional final at the
National Railway Museum in York to get them to the National Final
at Toyota UK HQ at Burnaston, Derby.
The team, consisting of year 8 boys Arron Davies and
Amartya Vadlamani, and year 7 boys Shubham Jain, Akshay Pal and
Charlie Heron, built a small robot called 'Edge-Hog. The
robot had to navigate its own way around an obstacle course in the
shortest time possible. The team gained points for this
technical achievement and also for showing a high level of
environmental awareness in the design of the 'Edge-Hog, and for
presenting a strong team image.
