Sixth Formers Win Rotary Technology Tournament
KSA took three teams of gifted and talented students along to the event at Weston Favell Academy, where they had to build a weight-powered vehicle using their design and engineering skills.
With around 30 teams taking part, the Academy was represented by a Year 8 girls' team, a Year 9 boys' team and a sixth form team.
The students spent the day coming up with a design proposal for a vehicle that could be no higher than 400mm and had to be able to travel up a ramp.
The Year 12 team, made up of Ranveer Sahota, Sunatthida Phatrio, Thirusan Thirugnanasambanthar and Tesvin John, was awarded first place in the advanced category and received a trophy.
DT teacher Nick Guy said: "They won because of the quality of their design ideas and drawings, and the way they were presented. They did very well."
