'Wow' your learners - take part in the Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge.

This is a curriculum-linked programme, for students aged 11-14, and aims to see teams work together to solve real-world engineering, technology and computing challenges.


Using robotics, design and discovery, students learn how to build, programme and control LEGO robots to complete a series of short aviation missions, using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets.

Where do we start?

For the 2020/2021 Challenge things will be a bit different to previous years because it will be virtual. From now until the end of the year, we will be getting schools to sign up, running virtual welcome and training sessions and sending kits out to new schools.

We’ll be keeping in touch with teachers over the next 3 months as they work with students to develop their competition portfolios. The Challenge will take place in the school and assessed by teachers, who will send the information to us to be moderated by the judging panels.

Sign up to the digital celebration events will be available from March and the events will be held digitally in April and May with a final celebration event planned for June.
