First Lego League Challenge

We are entering the Caterpillar First Lego League Challenge, we will be entering the competition in December. The competition involves programming a robot and creating a project to solve a cargo problem.


During the project we are working with members of staff from Caterpillar as well as Bretts to help us with our project.


Our robot is going to be programmed to undertake lots of missions, they can be seen here:



We are in the process of deciding on our project, the brief we have been given is:


The children need to create a project related to cargo, the brief they have been given by the IET for the project is:


  • Identify a specific problem related to making the transportation journey of products better.
  • Research your problem and your solution ideas.
  • Design and create a new piece of technology, equipment, or method of transportation that could improve the journey of the products.
  • Share your ideas, collect feedback, and iterate on your solution.
  • Create a creative and effective presentation that communicates your solution at an event.

Some questions to help make a decision are:

  • How does safety affect how cargo is transported?
  • How can you make transporting cargo safer?
  • How can you ensure cargo is transported to where it needs to go, especially when the location is difficult to access? Well-maintained

infrastructure and innovative ways to reach isolated areas should be considered.
