took on the bucket list.

0:00:000:00:02

See you.

0:00:020:00:05

Morning, everyone.

0:00:110:00:13

Leah here with Monday's Newsround.

0:00:130:00:14

Ant and Dec have dedicated their Bafta win to The Queen.

0:00:140:00:24

The ceremony which honours top TV in the last year took place

0:00:260:00:29

in London last night.

0:00:290:00:30

The pair accepted an award for best live event for the Queen's 90th

0:00:300:00:33

birthday celebration on ITV which they presented.

0:00:330:00:35

They also won an award for Saturday Night Takeaway.

0:00:350:00:37

And did you watch Eurovision on Saturday night?

0:00:370:00:39

It was won for the first time ever by Portugal.

0:00:390:00:41

The winner Salvador Sabral got a hero's welcome from thousands

0:00:410:00:44

of fans when he went back to Portugal.

0:00:440:00:46

But the singer was very modest, saying Portugal's real national hero

0:00:460:00:48

was still Cristiano Ronaldo.

0:00:480:00:53

If you've got a garage at home, what does it get used for?

0:00:530:00:56

Storing junk?

0:00:560:00:58

Keeping the bike warm?

0:00:580:01:02

Martin's been to meet two school pupils who have been

0:01:020:01:04

using their coding skills to create something big in their garage.

0:01:040:01:07

Have a watch.

0:01:070:01:08

This might look like an ordinary garage but inside Beth

0:01:080:01:10

and Emily have been building something very special.

0:01:100:01:12

Meet Roy the Robot.

0:01:120:01:16

They built Roy from scratch and have just come back from America

0:01:160:01:19

where Roy competed at the Robotics World Championships.

0:01:190:01:23

They were one of the youngest teams there with 500 robots

0:01:230:01:25

from around the world.

0:01:250:01:30

Check out the awesome abilities on this robot!

0:01:300:01:32

They are back in the UK so I'm going to investigate

0:01:320:01:34

what this robot is all about.

0:01:340:01:36

What do you guys have to do to make Roy do his job?

0:01:360:01:41

First we had to design a robot that could pick up hex balls,

0:01:410:01:44

as many as four balls, and then stack them and get up

0:01:440:01:47

the bridge in one minute.

0:01:470:01:50

We've already programmed it to drive.

0:01:500:01:52

We've got a remote.

0:01:520:01:53

It looks a bit like what you use to play video games on the TV with.

0:01:530:01:57

We've changed our robot three times.

0:01:570:01:58

The first one didn't work so we changed it

0:01:580:02:01

to pick up three balls.

0:02:010:02:05

We wanted it to pick up four so we changed it again.

0:02:050:02:08

What was it like in America?

0:02:080:02:09

You competed against 500 different teams.

0:02:090:02:11

My favourite part is competing with the other teams

0:02:110:02:13

and getting to meet them and how their robot works.

0:02:130:02:15

So what's next for Roy?

0:02:150:02:17

We won't use Roy any more.

0:02:170:02:20

We'll make a new robot.

0:02:200:02:23

We found out in America what our new game is and the new game

0:02:230:02:29

is hoops instead of hex balls, so we need to try and get as many

0:02:290:02:35

hoops onto a pole as we can.

0:02:350:02:36

So watch out, robot makers.

0:02:360:02:37

There will be a new robot into very soon.

0:02:370:02:42

There will be a new robot in town very soon.

0:02:420:02:44

Next up this man is set to go where no wingsuit

0:02:440:02:47

pilot has gone before - 40,000 feet in the air

0:02:470:02:49

to break four world records.

0:02:490:02:50

Ricky's got more.

0:02:500:02:54

This is Fraser.

0:02:560:03:01

He jumps out of planes in this special wingsuit for fun.

0:03:010:03:04

Yes, it's kind of a hobby.

0:03:040:03:08

And this week he is trying to break four wingsuit jumping world records.

0:03:080:03:15

He wants to fly at an altitude of 40,000 feet, that's higher

0:03:150:03:19

than the top of Mount Everest, the earth's highest mountain,

0:03:190:03:26

and he aims to glide at 250 mph wearing just his suit,

0:03:260:03:29

no other equipment.

0:03:290:03:30

That's very fast.

0:03:300:03:33

I jump all over the world but I train mainly in the UK

0:03:330:03:36

and I have a phenomenal team behind me who basically

0:03:360:03:38

pulled this all together.

0:03:380:03:42

He's carrying out the special world record attempt over Canada

0:03:420:03:45

and the US and hopes to raise money for an Armed Forces charity.

0:03:450:03:48

The suit has got a number of features.

0:03:480:03:50

First of all it is huge, which gives me a massive surface

0:03:500:03:53

area, which gives me the optimum shape and form to be able

0:03:530:03:56

to fly for a long time.

0:03:560:03:58

So what does it feel like in the sky?

0:03:580:04:00

All I can explain to you is that it's one of those sensations

0:04:000:04:03

that's really special.

0:04:030:04:04

Take all the pressure off your body, put yourself into a flat position,

0:04:040:04:07

and imagine you are a bird and you can fly

0:04:070:04:09

wherever you want to.

0:04:090:04:14

I see a point four or five miles away and I can target that

0:04:140:04:17

point and fly to it.

0:04:170:04:20

The suit actually inflates around me.

0:04:200:04:22

The airflow rushes into it.

0:04:220:04:23

It inflates and it is quite large and it allows me to actually glide.

0:04:230:04:27

Instead of falling at 120 mph I am falling at 30 to 40 mph.

0:04:270:04:30

Fraser has been training hard for this challenge and over

0:04:300:04:33

the years he has carried out 1300 wingsuit dives.

0:04:330:04:37

And talking of skydiving, a 101-year-old from Devon has become

0:04:370:04:39

the oldest person ever to do one.

0:04:390:04:41

Verdun Hayes, who fought in World War Two,

0:04:410:04:43

jumped 15,000 feet from a plane along with three

0:04:430:04:46

generations of his family yesterday afternoon.

0:04:460:04:51

He beats the previous record set by a man who was 35 days younger.

0:04:510:04:54

That's all from me.

0:04:540:04:55

Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.

0:04:550:05:00

Wild and Weird is on the way,

0:05:060:05:08

and our Fave at Five today is brand-new Hetty Feather! Yes!

0:05:080:05:11

We cannot wait for it.

0:05:110:05:12

Hey, Karim, I was thinking, I bet you are well relieved

0:05:120:05:15

that you didn't live in Victorian times, aren't you? Why?

0:05:150:05:17

Well, they'd have shoved you right up a chimney, wouldn't they, eh?

0:05:170:05:20
