Engineering Challenge

Tank Museum Challenge Two teams of Year 10 students took part in the excellent Tank Museum Challenge organised by Bournemouth University on the10th January.Whilstnoprizeswerewon, both teams designed and produced excel- lent ‘tanks’. The awesome ‘Beast’ had other competitors running scared, it was the only four motor tank. It ‘literally’ demolished the obstacles in the obstacle course in true tank style. The other tank design was highly praised by one of the tank museum staff as a homage to the early tanks of World War I, with its raked front. It was driven superbly, and was compact by comparison. It carried a perma- nent Star Wars passenger much to the amusement of everybody. Both teams showed excellent design and production skills, working as teams to pro- duce very solid builds. Their inventiveness and resilience were a credit to Queen Elizabeth’s School.
