Year 10 students from Prince Henry’s are celebrating after they won the Rotary Club Technology Competition. The competition pits students from local schools against each other, to work on a technology and engineering based task – with just a few hours to complete a working device.
Jake Rollinson, Dom Tinslay, Kieron Ojla and Niamh Turner had to make a moving vehicle that had to travel up a ramp, without the use of motors.
“The students did so well to win the Key Stage 4 category. They had to make the vehicle move using weights and a pulley system. The competition is a race against time as well as against each other and they really pulled together to create a fantastic design.” said Jess Wilkes, Design and Technology teacher, who took the students to the competition.
