In groups, we made fighting vehicle robots to push each other off a sumo circle.  We made them out of cardboard and paper.  The expert, called John, gave us the electronics: a circuit, wires, a transmitter, a receiver and a remote control.
I really liked it.  It was amazing making something that actually moved.  My team came second – I can’t believe it!
There was a grand final between Lightning and Car Smasher.  Lightning was the champion.  The secret to their success was: they made thick wheels with a grippy tread made using the glue gun, it was heavy and it had a sloping front.
At the very end, John asked us who would like to be an engineer – lots of people put hands up see picture).
