An Independent Day and Boarding School for Boys and Girls aged 3 to 18 years

College pupils triumphant at Young Technologist Tournament

The Young Technologist Tournament is an annual competition run by the Rotary Club.

Teams from schools across Scarborough compete to produce the best solution to a practical engineering problem which is not revealed until they arrive at the venue. This year the teams had to produce a working model of a motorised vehicle to transfer an emergency-aid payload across a river gorge.

A total of 13 teams from various schools were involved.  Scarborough College entered three teams, one each from Years 7, 8 and 9.

Over the space of several hours they all managed to produce excellent designs, the Year 7 and Year 9 teams both being among a very select group of teams which actually managed to complete the task successfully and deliver their payloads.  Out of all 13 teams our Year 8 team was presented with the ‘Best Portfolio’ award and our Year 7 team was declared overall winner of their class with a vehicle that sped across the gorge like Indiana Jones being chased by spear-toting cannibals!

Another great day for our students and congratulations to all who took part.
