Technology Tournament

Technology Tournaments are one-day events for teams of four students from local schools and colleges. they are a challenging and enjoyable way for young people to enrich their STEM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

The Technology Tournament is held at a number of venues within District 1180.

The aim of the tournament is to encourage young people to see design and technology as attractive and challenging; to provide opportunities for team building and practicing communication skills, as well as resolving a design and technology problem.

Further details are on the Rotary GB&I website. There is a link to this and all the youth competitions/activities on the Youth Services home page of this website.

Teams of four students are presented with problems to solve, categorised as ‘Foundation', ‘Intermediate' or ‘Advanced'.  

The Foundation tasks are designed for students in Key Stage 3 (ages 11 to 14), Intermediate tasks are intended for Key Stage 4 (ages 15 to 16) and Advanced tasks are for students in years 12 and 13 (Sixth Form).
"Judges (who kindly give their time freely) come from various walks of life being business men and women, educationalists, engineers and scientists (from Higher Education and Industry)."

An exciting day of activity is enjoyed by all.

In 2023/24 TT's are planned for Autumn 2023 at Coleg Cambria and at Neston High School. Additional TT's welcomed - Rotarians should contact Steve to see what is involved. Steve will happily guide and advise.
