RotaryMoE_RGB RotaryMoE_RGB

The fifteenth  York Rotary Technology Tournament organised by the three York Rotary Clubs at Portakabin on Tuesday 19th February challenged the creative  skills of 64 young Yorkies.


The all day tournament attracted an entry of 16 teams from 7 York schools.  Teams of four students working against the clock designed, built and demonstrated a practical solution to a technical  problem. The task ,  set at foundation intermediate and advanced levels conforming  to elements in the National Curriculum,   was to build a flashing beacon from materials provided by the three York Clubs.  


The   youngsters taking part created  a real competitive atmosphere in the modern setting of the Hi Bay  Portakabin conference centre. The great thing is that no advance preparation or homework is required  so the pupils are all  playing on a level pitch The Tournament costs were again met by sponsorship from Shepherd Building Group to encourage the promotion of learning for young people, particularly in the science and engineering subjects.


The VIP visitors included the Lord Mayor and civic party, Deputy Lieutenant of North Yorkshire and Patrick Shepherd Deputy Chairman of the Group who all agreed the event  is a really worthwhile activity and one that will help create  benefits for the wider community in years to come.
