This year we were pleased to welcome 29 teams from:

  • Borlase
  • Cressex
  • Highcrest
  • John Hampden
  • Princes Risborough
  • Wycombe High
  • Wye Valley

[Beaconsfield High, who have been competing in TTs for about 10 years, had to withdraw owing to staff sickness]

The task was to design and build a truck that could climb a slope driven only by a weight that turned the wheels through a system of pulleys.  It was extremely difficult and as usual it was remarkable how many different solutions were attempted.

Teams from Sir Wm Borlase's School, Marlow, won all three prizes.
