Invitation for 2019

   Tuesday 12th March 2019

at The John Charles Centre for Sport, Leeds

All secondary Schools in Leeds area are invited and a letter will be sent to Schools in spring 2017. 
Specific Rotary club representatives will be in regular contact

The event is overseen and sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Leeds, District 1040: these are
 Calverley, Headingley, Leeds White Rose, Leeds, Leeds Elmete, Roundhay and Rothwell. The University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University as well as local counsellors also sponsor the event.

We invite your school, academy or college to participate in the twelth Rotary Technology Tournament (2018). 

This follows the  successful events held previously with up to 30 schools having taking part at some time.

As this is a one day event bringing together teams of 4 students from secondary schools and colleges across the Leeds Region of Rotary District 1040. They are set a technology problem to solve and all is completed in one school day.  This provides opportunities for team building and practising communication skills, as well as problem solving.

Awards are be presented to the winners to display in their school and certificates for all taking part
These can be used for the CREST Discovery award providing the school has registered for the award with the British Science Association


Pupils from Years 7, 8 & 9 will tackle the Foundation Task

Pupils from Years 10 & 11 will tackle the Intermediate Task

Pupils from Years 12 & 13 will tackle the Advanced Task

Schools can submit 3 teams of 4, one at each level, but if teams for one or two levels only, can be submitted then normally there is a maximum of three teams in total. Teams with less than four members need to be agreed in advance  

Lunch: Students should bring their own packed lunch

Please confirm your schools interest and think about which students you might like to send.  You might like to consider selecting students who would particularly benefit from the opportunity to take part, rather than those with a particular aptitude for technology.   

We look forward to receiving your application (by post or e-mail) or using the form below.
