Mile End Primary School will compete against 23 other teams in the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) First Lego League Scotland Final.
The event, which takes place on Saturday February 29 at Perth College, challenges 9 to 16-year-olds to build a robot to tackle a series of missions, and create an innovative solution to a real world problem.
