ROTARY BAE TECHNOLOGY TOURNAMENT 2017

Posted on : 21-03-2017 | By : Allan | In : News

ROTARY BAe TECHNOLOGY TOURNAMENT 2017
The above event took place at the Boys’ and Girls’ Club, Lancaster on the 17th March 2017. For the first time all four local Rotary Clubs were involved and a total of eighteen teams took part from six local schools, seven at Foundation level (Key Stage 3), eight at Intermediate level (Key Stage 4) and three at Advanced level (Sixth Form). The task was to design and construct amotorised vehicle, a “mole”, to travel along a pipeline to recover or shift blockages. The Foundation task was to push debris beyond the finishing line, at Intermediate level teams had to push heavier debris along the pipeline to the end then the mole had to reverse back to the start line. At Advanced level the mole had to collect and retrieve the debris in the pipe and return it to the start position.

Before building their moles teams were required to plan and produce several designs, then select the best to construct. In doing so they had to compile a portfolio of their drawings, stating reasons for their selections, how they organised their teams, thought of ideas and developed them and specifying the challenges they had to overcome.

Marks were awarded for this, the design of the mole and its performance.
Work started at 9.30am and testing at 2.00pm followed by final testing in the presence of the judges and guest of honour, the Mayor of Lancaster, Coun. Robert Redfern. The results were as follows;
Foundation – winners: Lancaster Royal Grammar School
second: Morecambe High School
Intermediate – winners: Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale
second: Lancaster Royal Grammar School
Advanced – winners: Lancaster Royal Grammar School
second: Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale
