The LEGO MINDSTORMS team is proud to have sponsored LEGO MINDSTORMS and LEGO TECHNIC sets as prizes for a poster competition held at Sevenoaks School in Kent, England, during the 6-day Science Week 2011, with an attendance of 3776 students from schools in the area. During Science Week the students could try various experiments, learn about the human body, saw chemistry demonstrations and could participate in scientific challenges. One of the challenges was centered around space exploration.
Students from 7 schools entered the poster competition with the title of “What a space station should look like”. The competition was judged by NASA astronaut Dr Nicholas Patrick and the 3 winning entries received their prizes in their schools.
Congratulations to teams and students who won the competitions.
Students also had the opportunity to conduct a 20 minute-session with the astronaut crew on the International Space Station. See the video here:
Our thanks go to Graeme Lowrie, Head of Science and Technology at Sevenoaks School for the use of photos from the Science Week.
