Year 9 compete in the Rotary Technology Tournament
Two Year 9 teams represented Westholme in the prestigious Rotary Technology Tournament sponsored by BAE Systems. The contestants won their places by completing a design task and application form.
Both teams worked incredibly hard on the day demonstrating fantastic problem solving and practical skills. They created innovative design solutions utilising their excellent knowledge of physics and engineering to produce superb working scale model prototypes.
The objective of the brief was to design a motorised pulley system on a zip wire to transport supplies over a river.
The competition was hotly contested and both teams ranked very highly.
Congratulations to all our contestants who were a credit to the school.
