PUPILS from Cardenal Cisneros secondary school have reached South Africa to take part in the First LEGO League international robotics tournament finals.More than 265,000 pupils from 80 different countries competed for a place in the tournament over recent months, but the group from Albox was one of the few to make the final rounds in Johannesburg with their project, which can detect electrical impulses in muscles and turn them into computer clicks.After launching a plea for help to pay for their trip, the group of 10 pupils and two teachers were able to travel thanks to local businesses, residents and the Albox Council, who all chipped in to sponsor them.Before leaving, the group were visited by local mayor Rogelio Meno, Education councillor Sonia Cerdan and Junta de Andalucia regional government delegate Sonia Ferrer, who all wished them luck and encouraged them to make the most of the once in a lifetime experience.“No matter what happens, Albox will be proud of what you have achieved,” the councillor told the group.
