Eleven talented students attended the annual Rotary Club Design and Technology Tournament at Ashlyns School, along with pupils from 9 other local schools. Tring School fielded 3 teams from Years 9, 10 and 12. The challenge was to review and analyse a technical problem and then design, build and demonstrate a working model that solved the problem. This year the teams had to make a testing vehicle for crawling along inside a pipeline to clear debris stuck inside. The objectives become more complex for the older age groups.
The teams also had to compile a project portfolio containing all their design work and other information. and demonstrate to the judges how well their solution fulfilled the task objectives.
Congratulations to the Year 9 team who came 1st, closely followed by both the other teams coming in 2nd place.
