The Lego Club had a Skype Call with engineers at the European Space Agency on Wednesday 28th November. They discussed their research project which focuses on using a new nano material to convert harmful radiation into electrical energy and how it could be incorporated into radiation shielding in space. They had a very thought-provoking interview and the project has taken a great leap forward. In addition to the project, the team have built and programmed a robot to complete a variety of space-themed tasks. There was huge excitement among the team after the interview and the engineers were very impressed with both the project and the robot.
