Technology Tournament

The Whitby & District Technology Tournament,which is an annual event organised by the two Rotary Clubs,and held at the Whitby Pavillion,took place on March 2,2017

Teams engaged in a project to construct a 'space capsule launcher' from their given kit.

The challenge was to contruct the launcher so the capsule,an air ball, was launched into the air to a height of at least 3 metres. The senior team also had to ensure it came back down by parachute.

As ever the young engineeers responded to the challenge superbly.

Winning teams were Eskdale in the Foundation Class and teams from Fylinghall in both the Intermediate and Senior Classes.

Trophies were presented to the victors by Wing Commander Darren Whiteley,Commander of RAF Fylingdales,who was also a judge.

The event was sponsored by Sirius Minerals,Cleveland Scientific Institute,The Welding Institute(Teesside Branch),Scarborough Borough Council,and BDH Partners of Whitby. Extra support was also given by Macaw Engineering and Dalby Offshore.Fylingdales staged a display of their activities relating to searching in space.
