Techno Challenge - Activities Week
Boats were this year's Techno Challenge theme. Students made & raced Paddle Boats & Power Boats.
30 year 7, 8 & 9 students had a fun creative and successful week building and racing Paddle Boats and Power boats as well as racing each other at Langar Karting track.
As well as the fun of the event, students were using Science and Engineering skills covering topics like, Pulley ratios, Torque, Hydrodynamics, and Electrical Engineering
On the Friday the completed boats were judged and raced on the following categories:
Fastest Powerboat: Sameer Qaiser

However all students should be proud of their achievements and conduct having created some amazing results with a really positive attitude.
