Rotary Design Tournament – ‘Fishers Bridge the Gap’



A National Rotary Design Tournament was held across England on Tues 3rd March.

St John Fisher pupils entered the Kirklees Tournament. Three teams from our school entered  1 team for Key Stage 3, 1 team for KS4 and 1 team for KS5, each team was made up of four students. The students had to design and make a Bridge structure with varying degrees of difficulty across the three Key Stages. The modeled bridge had to span various gaps across a river, take a 1 kilogram weight and parts of the bridge had to open and close to allow tall ships to pass under it. Our students performed extremely well and with over 33 teams represented, our three teams all came second in their respective Key Stages
