Rotary BAE Systems Technology Tournament

  • Rotary2017a

  • Rotary2017c

On Friday 17th March two teams from St Mary’s competed in the annual Rotary BAE Systems Technology Tournament held in Lytham St Anne’s. The teams were given the challenging of engineering a motorised device that was required to move electronically down a tunnel, move pieces of wood and reverse back to the start of the tunnel. The teams had to brainstorm, discuss and design different ideas and solutions to produce a portfolio of work, they then had to spend 3 hours manufacturing and testing their final motorised device. Both groups produced some interesting and creative solutions which they then tested against other teams from various different Blackpool Schools and Colleges. A big well done and congratulations to the Y11 KS4 team who came second in their category.

Thank you to both teams for competing on the day:

KS3 team: Jess Hill, Michael Woof, Antonia Harris, Lewis Dyson.
KS4 team: Jamie Rimmer, Rylie McGeever, Sophie Woods, Aliesha McLaughlin.
