Lego Mindstorms Challenge
What is the Heathrow Lego Mindstorms Challenge?
The HLMC is a workshop for Year 8 students delivered in schools in the boroughs of Ealing, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Slough and Spelthorne. The programme is provided by Heathrow and the sessions are run by people from Learning to Work (a not-for-profit organisation aimed at introducing young people to different careers paths) and volunteers from Heathrow. The programme is designed to:
- Encourage Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths study and careers.
- Introduce students to the Heathrow Apprenticeship scheme, and understand the skills and knowledge required to work at the airport.
- Develop skills for the world of work including: communications, team working and confidence building.
The workshop was run by the Learning to Work Team supported by up to five Heathrow Managers who volunteered their services.
