The Technology Tournament for teams of Secondary Schoolchildren
The Rotary Technology Tournament was inspired by the Reverend Derek Upcott who devised the challenging tasks and the format. Tournaments are now being run in many areas of the British Isles and abroad.
Teams of four are set a task to design and build a device to complete a challenge. The tasks involve mechanics and the need to produce a robust and practical solution. Tasks are adjusted to allow for the age of the team members and each category is judged both on the design and the success of their device.
