Two Trinity teams won their age-group categories at the recent SATRO competition.
The teams competed at a local heat of the well renowned SATRO Competition. SATRO is an educational charity, working across the South East, that inspires and engages young people studying science, technology, engineering and maths. Each event is supported by volunteers from relevant professions and industry.
The competition aims to reflect real life engineering problems to which there is no ‘correct’ answer. Students had to complete a ‘design and build’ challenge to meet a complex brief. To solve the problem teams must think creatively and work collaboratively and be able to execute their design in a fixed time, using only the materials provided. Teams in all age categories were given exactly the same challenge brief.
Our intermediate age-group team consisted of Joel Cuttle, Aman de Silva, Joe Greenway, Sam Greenway, George Ogden and Joshua Todd. Our junior team only had only five members, Arya Battacharya, James Blair, Dylan Chung Kam Chung, Ben Sindall and Shashank Vinoo. Producing two very different, but effective, designs both teams did exceptionally well and won the competition convincingly within their age categories. Students were particularly proud that both of their winning designs outperformed all designs produced by students in the senior age category!
Both teams will progress to the county final in March and we wish them the best of luck!
