Pupils from an Orpington school scooped an award for creating a working robot at a national science and engineering fair in London last week.

The Year 10 students, known as Cold Fusion, from St Olave’s Grammar School, in Goddington Lane, beat hundreds of youngsters to the Judges Award for their team work, effort and perseverance.

A total of 36 teams built robots as part of the 2013 VEX UK National Championships over two days at The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair at ExCel, in east London.

Taking just three days to complete their machine, the boys from St Olave’s were pitted against rival robots in a game called Sack Attack created for the event.

Despite missing out on the top prize, a trip to California, they were invited back to compete next year and received £3,000 worth of materials for future projects.
