Tech Tournament - October 2015

The DT Department took students to the Tech Tournament. The competition is run by the Rotary club. On arrival the pupils are set a challenge which they need to complete in a limited time using only the materials provided. The challenge this year was to build a bridge from card and straws. The bridge had two spans one was a straight span which a small boat had to pass underneath. The other half had to open like tower bridge to allow a boat with a mast to pass underneath. The whole bridge also had to be strong enough for a 1 kg weight to travel along it's length. We took 3 teams one from each key stage. The tasks was adapted slightly for each key stage to make it more complex for the older pupils.
