Young Technologist

Young Technologist Competition

What is it?

Teams of four Design and Technology students with an interest in engineering and science subjects are invited to apply to compete in a full day out of school event to devise and build a solution to an unseen technical task.

There are three age categories for teams to enter. The one task has three levels of difficulty:

Basic Task (for students S1-S2)
Intermediate Task (for students S3-S4)
Advanced Task (for students S5-S6

Working against the clock your team will need to have good communication skills, be well organised and able to show the development of your task solution in a design portfolio.

At the end of the day your solution in the form of a working model will be tested and judged against competing teams from your own school / college and teams from neighbouring schools & colleges.
