28 February 2020
The next Rotary Technology Tournament is to be held at The City of Norwich School on the 28th February, 2020. This will run from 0930 hrs to around 1500 hrs.
This event, which will be the 13th annual tournament run by the Rotary clubs
of Reepham, Norwich and Norwich St Edmund regularly attracts around 100 secondary age pupils from up to ten schools. Teams from Reepham High regularly take part. Their enthusiasm and determination has previously secured a team win. The tournaments are based on a practical task, sight unseen until the day, which require pupils, in teams of four, to design and make a working solution. Pupils have a very limited range of tools and materials with which to work. The task is graded to suit Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and sixth form students.
We get very strong support from The Norwich Engineering Society and KLM UK Engineering, who see this event as a real encouragement to young designers and engineers, and private sponsors to whom we are very grateful.
Every year the Lord Mayor of Norwich and Sheriff of Norwich also attend.
