Innovations In Technology

The Innovations in Technology will be underway today and we’re sure that the great weather forecast means that those under solar power will be going great guns in the Crafty Design and Moving Water Challenges.

We’re particularly intrigued as to how students find our newest challenge: the Junkyard Challenge. Teams of four students will be provided with a range of materials and be required to create a structure that will span 1.5 metres within a three hour time limit. Learn more…

Energy Expo

The 2012 Energy Expo is in full swing today featuring displays of commercial applications of new technologies and energy efficient systems. This is definitely worth your support crews, parents, friends and relatives of your team to visit in between your events!
