The PHSG Robotic girls are researching space as it is the theme for the 2018 First Lego League. This includes the physical and social problems humans face while in space, such as the increased radiation and the isolation.
First Lego League's main aspects (core values) are team bonding, community growth, research, building and engineering. It is an international competition to encourage problem-solving and to encourage enthusiasm about technology.
The regional competition will be held on 13 October 2018 at UNISA. As this is the first competition for most of the girls they hope to acquire new skills, such as public speaking, as they will be required to deliver numerous speeches at the competition.
