Technology School Projects Talented Kids

Tournament of Minds is a competition to test problem-solving and thinking in students from primary and secondary schools. It attracts thousands of participants from New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa and Uganda.

Kenakena's Year 7 & 8 team won the National title on September 23rd in the Maths and Engineering category when they excelled in a grueling 3 hour lock-up challenge to design and build a wind-powered machine which could launch a small object high in the air and land in a certain place, as well as incorporating their invention into a 10 minute presentation using a range of performance skills.

The teams next challenge, hopefully with your help, will be to raise the $13,000 necessary to get them to the Australasian-Pacific Finals in Adelaide in October.

Kenakena School has previously won this competition in 2013 in Canberra.

Funds will be used for airfares and accommodation in Adelaide for the team.
