Girls from St Mary’s School, Cambridge have reached the quarter finals of the RoboCupJunior European Robotics Championship

A team of 11-year-old girls from St Mary’s School, Cambridge have reached the quarter finals of the RoboCupJunior European Robotics Championship

Coming eighth overall, they were the only primary age group team representing the UK and the only all-girls team.

In a separate competition where a collaborative programming session took place, and in which three different languages were spoken, the team came second.

Andrew Severy, computer science coordinator at St Mary’s, said: “They richly deserve their success and I am confident that they have a great future ahead of them in the areas of STEM and computer science both at school and beyond.”
