Blackness Pupils' Robotic Success

We are pleased to anounce the success of our Robotics Team. Our eight pupil strong team has qualified for the VEX Robotics UK National Robotics Finals. The finals are donw in Telford, so it has been all hands to the deck to secure funding for the trip. The pupils organised a raffle, Craft Fair and Ckae sale to help fund their trip. We are also lucky enough to have secured funding from a number of local businesses to support the trip. These include:

4J Studios

TAG Games

STAR Dundee

6th/8th Boys Brigade, Dundee

Burgess Charity Trust

Dundee United FC Charity Trust

Storm's Dog Food Shop

The Skin Detective

Thorntons Law, Dundee

Stephen Hederson Jewellery

Henry's Coffee House


The whole team are very appreciative of the response from local businesses, expecially considering the three week timescale from qualifying to reaching the finals on 1st of March.  We are looking forward to taking part in such a large, national event and we go knowing the Blackness community is fully behind us. 

Well done guys!
