On Wednesday, 16th February 2023, 22 teams from 7 Leicester schools gathered at Leicester Grammar School to take part in the Rotary Technology Tournament 2023. The day started at 9:30 and by two o’clock each team had designed and built their solution to the challenge that they first say that morning. After testing each model the judges deliberated and winners from each age group were identified. This year the trophies were all taken by teams from our host school and well done to each of them. But well done to every student in every team because it really is the taking part that is so rewarding.
Our thanks must go to our sponsors for the event, Sir Thomas White Charity, Pick Everard and Hodges & Drake, and also to our host, Leicester Grammar School. While Leicester Rotary Club organise the event, we have been supported by Rotarians from Leicester DeMontfort and Leicester Novus.
Thanks also to Howes Percival who have provided invaluable background help.
