Pupils from Nailsea built a programmable robot with experts from Bath University.

After making the robot out of LEGO, the year six pupils from Golden Valley Primary School had to work out different calculations and so they could programme it to travel from one place to another.

The pupils programmed the robots using encrypted code on their laptops and sent them on a mission.

Year five and six students look forward to the event every year. It is an extension of their work in IT and coding.
