A TANKERSLEY school whizz-kid and his team will be the first contestants to represent the UK at a robot championships in China in December.

A six year-old pupil, along with his team mates, managed to bag themselves a place at the WER World Championships in Shanghai after coming second in the World Educational Robot (WER) Contest back in July.

He said: “I’ve always enjoyed building robots and would love to be a robot scientist one day, I’m so excited about competing in Shanghai.”

The trip to compete in Shanghai is expensive and a total of £5,500 is needed to be raised to pay for the team’s flights, accommodation and other expenses while over there, which is why a crowd funding appeal has been set up.

Mum said: “We’re very proud of what they’ve achieved. When they started it was just a bit of fun and no one had any idea how big this thing was.

“It’s an awesome opportunity for them to represent their country, but it’s not going to be cheap so we need all the help we can get.”
