FIRST® LEGO® League Champions at Westminster
2014 FIRST® LEGO® League world champions Invicta, along with 2013 world champions Untitled 1, joined policymakers Wednesday 9th September at a pledge signing event at Westminster.
 
The two teams had a chance to show off their robots and teach MPs how to programme LEGO Mindstorms.  Attending MPs signed a pledge to encourage employers in their constituencies to work with schools to provide work experience opportunities and inspirational careers information.
 
The event was filmed by ITN Productions for new online programme Working to Engineer a Better World, to be presented by Natasha Kaplinsky. 

Congratulations Invicta and Untitled 1!
