Students from Seven Kings School in Ilford competed against other schools to try and solve the world’s water problems with Lego robots at an event hosted by Queen Mary University of London’s School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS).

The first Lego League Tournament took place in the People’s Palace on Saturday, January 20 for the third year running.

This year’s theme and world problem was water, and questioned how to improve the way people find, transport, use, or dispose of it.

The tournament was the culmination of weeks of preparation, where students have worked in teams to identify a specific problem, design an innovative solution with robotic models, and get feedback for their presentation.

The teams converged on east London to present their work to judges from the university, top prizes went to home schooled teams - ‘Water works’, in first place and ‘Detrasherfiers II’ in second.
