Pupils from Parkside Primary School in Jedburgh got their hands on some top technology recently when the Lego Mindstorms Challenge (LMC) visited their school.

The challenge, a touring programme of science shows and workshops for schools, helped bring science to life, with the interactive workshop giving pupils the chance to programme their own Mega Mindstorm robots – exploring what a robot is, why they are useful and how robots work. The primary six and seven youngsters were able to use their new programming knowledge and problem-solving skills to make their robot complete a number of challenges, each more complicated than the last.
