Leigh University Technology College pupils in the Vex Robotics Competition

Students from a Dartford college will be taking part in a national technology competition in Birmingham this week.

The Year 12 pupils from the Leigh University Technology College have qualified for the UK championships of the Vex Robotics Competition, which will take place from Thursday to Saturday at the NEC.

They will compete against 40 other schools and colleges in a series of robotics challenges, and if they win, they will go through to the world championships in the US next month.

Principal Steve Leahey said: “This is a remarkable achievement. Our students have only studied robotics since September.

“They are very excited.”

The college specialises in engineering and computer science and is holding an open evening on Wednesday. Email simon.bettridge@theleighutc.org.uk for more details.
