Downham Rotary Club challenged more than 90 school pupils to find creative solutions during its annual technology tournament.

Students from Downham Academy, Iceni Academy, Terrington St Clement’s High School and Witchford Village College were asked to devise a piece of model equipment which would carry supplies across a “ravine”.

Pupils were given three hours to design, construct and test their models.

Foundation prizes for the youngest students were awarded to Witchford and Iceni. Intermediate prizes were presented to Terrington and Iceni with advanced prizes going to Downham and Terrington.

A team from Terrington won the overall best title with second place going to Witchford.

The tournament, which was held in Downham Town Hall on Wednesday last week, was sponsored by Aventa, BAE, GE and RAF Marham.

Downham Academy pupils Tyler Reid, Oliver Cook and Toby Lord are pictured creating their model during the tournament.
