Technology Challenge

This is a challenge aimed at primary school children. A team of Rotarians come and spend the day with the class and work through some problem solving and the builing of a structure. Great fun and everyone gets something out of the day. 

Debating Challenge

This is run in conjunction with other Stafford Rotary clubs and our MP Mr Lefroy. Teams from the schools go down to London and hold the debate in one of the committee rooms. Great experience for them.
