  • Technology Competition

    Published 17/03/23

    On the 21st February a team of year 9 students from both Design and Technology and Engineering were invited to take part in a competition at the very prestigious Winchester college. 

    The competition was made up of a selection of schools from Winchester College to Portsmouth and the surrounding areas. 

    The students were given a strict timeline in which to design and manufacture a full sized, and functional chair.  The chair was to be made entirely out of corrugated card, use no glue or tape, be as light as possible, attractive as possible, comfortable as possible and hold the weight of a full-grown adult. 

    Henry Beaufort had two teams of three all of whom fully embraced the challenge, creatively engineering and designing a solution to the problem. 

    The completed items were then evaluated and tested using rigorous testing criteria. 

    Mr Brown Teacher of Design and Technology said “I am delighted to say that out of the 8 teams Henry Beaufort came a very credible seventh and second, being just pipped to the post by a Team from a school in Portsmouth. 

    I am incredibly proud of Team HB, who really showed their creativity and innovation, not to mention teamwork and a phenomenal work ethic.”
