ACSE Research Student, Ben Apopei, is a specialist advisor to Team Dreadnought, the Doncaster Ridgewood School team, as they aim for success in the 'First' Robot Competition in the United States.

This follows on from earlier success at a national level by the school team after months of preparation and assistance by Ben. The school says (about Ben): "His knowledge and capabilities have been indispensable and critical to the team's success so far."

The team is being filmed by 'Teacher TV' and a programme is being made about the team and the trip to the USA.
