Basingstoke Rotary Technology Tournament 2013

Thu, Mar 14th 2013 at 12:00 am - 12:00 am

The Technology Tournament organised by Basingstoke Loddon Rotary in March at BCoT was a great success. 84 students from 7 local schools and colleges made up the 21 teams competing.

The task was to build a weight powered vehicle that would climb a rising track over a 1.5 metre length. The gradient of the rise increased for the different levels of entry, which were dependent on age. The vehicle was powered by a 200g weight.

We had teams entering from Aldworth Science College, Bishop Challoner Catholic Secondary School, Brighton Hill Community School, Fort Hill Community School, Sherfield School, Basingstoke College of Technology and Queen Mary
