The Rotary Club of Cambridge Technology Tournament 2015
 
19 Teams -  17 school teams and 2 teachers’ teams – from 7 schools in the region
 

This is a challenge for teams in a morning to design in miniature the solution to a real life problem.

In this year's test a rescue package had to be delivered across a crocodile infested river with just a zip wire in place.
 
 
The judging by members of the Rotary Club and colleagues with an engineering background was not only on the result of achieving the task but also on the planning, teamwork, problem solving and documentation/portfolio as well as the working design.
 
Rotarian Graeme Minto, the Club’s Secretary said “The real result for the pupils themselves is developing their teamwork and action planning in a morning as well as enjoying the science and technology”.
 
 
Graeme went on to point out that in a recent edition of the Times, Tom Whipple, Science Editor said “We need to double the number of school leavers going into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)”.
 
Rotarian Anne St Ives who organised things for us paid tribute to Elizabeth Crilly, director of Stem Team East, who supported the event and helped with the recruitment of schools and provided all of the materials and equipment.  Elizabeth said at this year's event “This gives schools the opportunity to engage with engineers and to take part in learning challenges.  We are very glad to have Rotary’s support”.
