Loddon Vale Rotary Technology Tournament

On Friday 13 December, the Loddon Vale Rotary Technology Tournament returned for a second year.  

UTC Reading hosted the annual technology tournament, with a range of local schools entering teams to tackle three different variations of The Flashing Beacon Challenge.  

Teams from UTC Reading, The Bulmershe School, Theale Green School, The Holt School and Piggott School entered students to demonstrate their STEM abilities and try to beat the challenge.  

It was an amazing day with the Mayor of Wokingham attending to watch the testing and present the winning team for each level of challenge their prizes.  

I would like to congratulate the following teams, who are this year’s winners:  

Foundation - Theale Green School  

Intermediate - UTC Reading (reigning champions) 

Advanced - The Bulmershe School 

It was clear to see that the students from all schools really enjoyed the day and all excelled at beating the challenge set to them by Rotary. We can’t wait to see what challenges will be set next year and to welcome back teams from local school to attempt to beat the challenges.
