A winning formula at technology tournament
Thursday 10th November 2016
Science Oxford is excited to be sponsoring the prizes for the Foundation winners at the Rotary Club of High Wycombe Technology Tournament 2017 for the second time.
Twenty-five teams will be competing at this year’s tournament, which takes place 17th November 2016 at John Hampden Grammar School. The event is supported by volunteers from local STEM businesses.
Rotary Technology Challenges test the knowledge, ingenuity, innovation, application and manual skills of the participants and their ability to work in a team. The teams of four students have to solve a design and technology based task which they know nothing about until the day of the event. Each team is required to design, develop, build and then test their solution to the task from the materials supplied. The day culminates in the testing session when teams demonstrate their best solution to the task and can observe the efforts of competing teams.
There are three levels for team members, Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced. Every participant successfully completing the Technology Tournament can apply for a CREST Discovery Award.
