Technology Challenge 2020

The event took place on Thursday 5th March at Glossopdale school. SPH had two teams of 4 pupils from the Y9 BTEC Engineering class. The groups worked really well in completing a complex design and make challenge set by the rotary club.
The pupils were up against other teams from Glossopdale school. They had to produce a portfolio and a working model and make sure that they adhered to the rules set out in the brief by the rotary club. There were 7 teams in total and one of the SPH teams won the competition and shared joint first place. They are now the proud owners of a trophy and the Rotary club of Glossop will be coming into school to present the winning team with a prize.
The rotary club chairman and members of the committee commented on how well the pupils applied themselves to the task and said they were a credit to their schools.
A HUGE well done to all the students that took part!
