Pupils Soar in Rotary Design Competition!
Last week, Senior School Design and Technology pupils took part in the Rotary Club Youth Technology Competition against teams from The Bishop's Stortford High School, Leventhorpe and Birchwood (who also hosted the competition).
The teams were tasked with designing an environmentally friendly vehicle that could be powered by a 200g weight and would be able to ascend a slope and raise a flag at the same time. Each age group had slightly different inclines to climb but all were restricted to materials and time.Teamwork was a key part of the challenge if a solution was to be designed and tested in the time and all the pupils showed excellent collaboration skills and allocated tasks efficiently.
A huge well done to the intermediate team for an ambitious design, to the advanced team who coming in second in their category, and congratulations to the 4th Form Foundation team who won their category!
