The tenth Calderdale Technology Tournament is the largest to date with 33 teams from nine local schools.

The event was a hands on and logical approach to energy transfer, gearing and frictional issues in designing a vehicle capable of covering the 1.5metre test track.

Not all entries crossed the finish line. Successful schools included Calder High, foundation level; Ryburn Valley High, intermediate level; and Crossley Heath, advanced level. Calderdale mayor John Hardy presented winning teams with plaques.

The Rotary clubs of Halifax, Calder, Brighouse, Sowerby Bridge, and Hebden Bridge provided support and funding.
