Sixteen students from Years 7 and 9 recently had the opportunity to take part in a Rotary Club DT Competition held at Whitby School.
Along with five other schools, the teams were not allowed to know what the task would be prior to their visit but on arrival they were excited to be given the task of creating a model which could catapult items! Each team of four then worked enthusiastically and tirelessly all day to create their model.
All Stokesley teams did very well: one of the Year 7 teams came 3rd in the intermediate category and our Year 9 team, who were put in to an advanced category against teams of much older students, came 3rd as well!
All students had a fantastic day and we hope to participate again next year. Thanks to our local Rotary club for their support.
