Two Old Lyonians -- Jonathan Amah OL 2016 and Daniel Guirgis OL 2018 -- have graciously returned as judges at the UK season opener for the VEX Robotics competition 2023-24 that involves 20 teams from 8 external schools and 3 John Lyon teams.
Jonathan Amah is currently a Design and Regulatory Engineer. He left John Lyon in 2016 and went to pursue Mechanical Engineering with Professional Development at Brunel University and later progressed to do an MsC in Medical Engineering at Imperial College.
Daniel Guirgis is currently a Design Engineer at McLaren Automotive Ltd. He left John Lyon School in 2018 to study Mechanical Engineering at Swansea University, followed by a Master's Degree in Automotive Engineering from Cranfield.
The School is honoured to have such successful alumni members back and to have hosted such a prestigious event.
Among the participants were two of our seasoned robotics teams, who previously showcased their talents at the World Robotics Championships in Dallas earlier this year; our IQ team becoming 1st of all UK independent schools and 2nd of all UK schools. They were joined by our newest team, comprising Year 9 pupils Joshua and Harshil. We commend all three teams for their outstanding performance, with a special congratulations to Joshua and Harshil, who emerged victorious in the ‘Skills’ section. Their impressive win has secured John Lyon’s place in the National Championship in March.
We are very lucky to be able to provide opportunities such as these for our pupils who have an interest in robotics and programming thanks to the generous support of the 1876 Fund. The Fund has enabled the purchase of robots, equipment and entry into the competitions, and we are thankful to all in our community who have contributed to this success.
