Oakham teams build beacons at Leicester Technology Tournament

Pupils took part in the 6th annual Rotary Club of Leicester Technology Tournament, held at Leicester Grammar School.

Mr Thomas Banham, Teacher of Design and Technology tells us more:-

“Unlike previous years, the pupils were tasked with building a ‘beacon’, with varying degrees of difficulty relating to the number of flashes in given time periods, over a 4-hour competition. Alongside this, pupils were expected to create a portfolio of the design process as well as design a billboard to promote the Rotary Club.

In all three categories, the pupils performed remarkably, with the Intermediate team agonisingly missing out on the top prize by a single point.

The creativity and engineering solutions created were of exceptionally high quality, and the teams enjoyed the competitive nature of the event. It was also a great opportunity to further develop skills within STEM.”
