Rotary Technology Tournament comes to Oxford 2022

Oxford 2022 will be playing host to a number of students from schools across the city taking part in a Rotary-organised technology tournament.

Rotary technology tournaments are a challenge and an enjoyable and rewarding experience for those taking part.

This will be an interesting and fun day out of school which will test the knowledge, ingenuity, innovation, application and manual skills of the participants and their ability to work in a team.

The team of four students have to solve a design and technology-based task which they know nothing about until the day of the event.

Each team will be required to design, develop, build and then test their solution to the task from the materials supplied. The day will culminate in the testing session when teams demonstrate their best solution to the task and can observe the efforts of competing teams.

Stewards will be on hand to guide the student teams. And the tournament will be judged by Rotarians and guests with backgrounds in engineering, technology and design.

Every year, over 100 Rotary technology tournaments are held across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales engaging over 5,000 students. Oxford 2022 will feature one of the first Rotary technology tournaments since lockdown.

Technology Tournaments are accredited by The British Science Association so that every participant successfully completing the TT day can apply for a CREST Discovery Award.
