Congratulations go to Manor Park School who came 2nd in Aberdeen heat of First Lego League today (10th December). The team visited the dot.rural Hub as part of preparations for the event. They had a tour of the Hub and spoke to researchers Dr Gemma Webster and JP Vargheese about their ideas for how to help older adults to use technology. Former dot.rural PhD student Dr Alice Toniolo (now a postdoctoral researcher in the Computing Science department at Aberdeen) acted as a mentor to the team.
First Lego League is a competition involving programming a robot and coming up with original ideas, participants are aged 8-12 years old.
