Technology Tournament 2013
Thu 14th March 2013 at 12.00 am - 12.00 am
The annual Rotary Technology Tournament was held on Thursday 14 March 2013 at Highcrest Academy, off Hatters Lane High Wycombe.
This year we were pleased to welcome 29 teams from:
- 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.
