Tungsten Knights Robotics

Personal message

Please help us, the Tungsten Knights Robotics Team from Pretoria to represent South Africa in the First Lego League International Championships to be held in Turkey - Izmir from 22 – 25 May 2019.  This life changing opportunity is by invitation only.

In the 2018 FLL INTO ORBIT Challenge more than 40 000 teams from 98 countries took part by building and programming LEGO based robots to complete various tasks using LEGO Mindstorms Technology.  Our team finished in the top 5 in the SA Championships and only award winning teams from the National Championship event have been invited to take part in the International Championships.  

During the Northern Gauteng Regional Championships we won the "Best Mechanical Robot Design" award.  In the SA Championships we were the only team to score above 200 points in the Robot run (224 points) and won the "Best Robot Performance" award"

Our rookie team are aged between 14-16 years old.  Our 3 coaches will be joining us on this once in a lifetime experience.

Our Robot “Murphy” is self built and you can see him in action on our video. 

Funds breakdown:
Return flights to Izmir Turkey R12000 per person
Accommodation 22 – 25 May 2019 R4000 per person
Meals and beverages R1000 per person
Tournament registration Fee R5000 per person
Total = R22000 per person
5 kids and 3 coaches = R176000

Any amount brings us closer to our dreams! 

Please invest in us to become future engineers!
