Teams of four Design and Technology students with an interest in engineering and science subjects were invited to apply to compete in a full day out of school event to devise and build a solution to an unseen technical task.
There were three age categories for teams to enter. The one task had three levels of difficulty:
Foundation Task (for students aged 11 - 14)
Intermediate Task (for students aged 14 - 16)
Advanced Task (for students aged 16+ )
Working against the clock the team needed to have good communication skills, be well organised and be able to show the development of the task solution in a design portfolio.
The solution in the form of a working model was tested and judged against competing teams from neighbouring schools & colleges.
