Pupils from an Aberdeen school are preparing to take part in the finals of a UK-wide robotics competition.
The team of children from Tullos School has won the Scottish heat of the VEX IQ Robotics Challenge.
To reach the last stages of the contest, the children worked hard to design and build a radio-controlled robot to carry out a series of tasks.
The five pupils, as well as their science teacher Rory Holwerda, beat eight other school teams to become the champions at the Scottish finals, which was held at Robert Gordon’s College last year.
And they have now received financial support from i-Tech Services, a Subsea 7 company, to give them their best chance of success in the grand finals in Telford at the start of March.
The primary seven pupils are Niamh Hague, Kaeden McKeon, Kiril Zabyvajev, Denis Abramov and Brooke Flood.
The children’s teacher Mr Holwerda said: “Thanks to the generous support from our friends at i-Tech Services, our team is incredibly excited and grateful that they are now able to attend the VEX IQ national finals in England.
“We’re all very proud of them, and are wishing them the best of luck.”
Councillor John Wheeler , the city council’s education convener said: “This is fabulous news.
“Thanks to iTech Service’s generosity, I’m sure the boys and girls in the Tullos School team will do their school proud in the UK finals next month.”
