An annual technology tournament for pupils from North Herts schools attracted a field of 17 teams – but the squads representing Baldock’s Knights Templar School proved too strong in every department.
The challenge, organised by Hitchin Priory Rotary Club, was held at The Priory School in Hitchin where the teams worked on a practical design and construction project set by the educational charity SETPOINT, using materials which were supplied by the organisers.
Exactly what they had to do is being kept secret, because the same tests will be tackled by schools in other areas in the weeks to come.
There were honours to be claimed in three age sections – Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced – with Hitchin Girls’ School, Priory School and Hitchin Boys’ School respectively taking the runners-up trophy in each class.
