Youngsters showcased their engineering prowess in the Rotary Club of Royston’s annual Youth Technology Tournament.
Teams from schools in Royston and the surrounding area had to solve a problem of building a ‘vehicle’ to transport a rescue package on a suspended cable across a river.
The schools taking part in the tournament at The Cambridge Motel in Shepreth were Meridian Upper School, Roysia Middle School and Greneway Middle School from Royston, and Freman College, Edwinstree and Ralph Sadlier schools from Buntingford and Puckeridge.
Royston Rotary president Clarice Wahlich said: “It always surprises us just how innovative the youngsters can be in grasping the concept of the project.
“Everyone taking part deserves praise for the way they tackled the problem and came up with ideas to complete the task.
