DT department teams up with STEM Cymru for Lego Challenge

A group of primary school children put their Lego skills to good use at a special event recently.

Rydal Penrhos hosted a Prep and Primary Schools’ Lego Challenge on Tuesday, June 26, which was held in partnership with STEM Cymru and the Royal Academy of Engineering.

A team from the Prep School together consisting of Lucas Yu, Lily Copeland, Ellie Knight, Cameron Pye, Rafe Tunstall and Lucy Ranales-Griffiths, with their counterparts at nearby Ysgol Pen y Bryn took part in a series of different activities based on the theme of water, where they were tasked with working as a team to solve the challenges put in front of them by staff at the Expo.

Their fantastic grasp of the concept led to some outstanding work and final outcomes throughout, which drew significant praise from Head of Design Technology Phil Sutton and the rest of the supervising team.

Each team received a medal and certificates acknowledging their fine contribution to what was another successful event, which is the latest in a series of themed-events and competitions put on by the department throughout the academic year for both Rydal Penrhos pupils and other education establishments across the region.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “We are very proud of our association with STEM here at Rydal Penrhos, and our Prep and Primary Schools’ Lego Challenge was another fantastic demonstration of the incredible work going on day-to-day at our DT department under the expert leadership of Mr Sutton.

“Congratulations to everyone that took part and thanks once again to Ysgol Pen y Bryn for coming along to lend their support.”
