The Poole Rotary Technology Tournament 2019
For the second year running, we’re backing Rotary’s annual Technology Tournament and supporting science and technology students in Dorset.
Last year’s event was a huge success, and sponsoring it gave us the chance to support our local area in a way that reflects the industries we work with.
STEM subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – are at the heart of what we do, so getting behind this year’s competition was an easy decision to make.
The 2019 Poole Technology Tournament is going to be held at Parkstone Grammar School again, this time on Friday, 8 March, and will challenge pupils from 11 secondary schools in Poole, East Dorset and the Purbecks.
Working in teams of four, these smart youngsters will have to put their STEM skills into practice to solve a practical problem, designing, building and testing a working model on the day.
Encouraging these talents is close to our hearts, and makes good business sense, too. After all, they might end up working for – or even starting – the companies that will make use of Coda’s services in the future. So, don’t forget us, kids!
As usual, the real hard work is done by the Rotary Clubs of Poole, Poole Bay and Parkstone, who are organising and running the event for the ninth time. It’s become a regular fixture in the calendar, and we’re proud to be playing our part in that as sponsors.
The 2018 competition saw more than 100 pupils create a “space capsule” launcher for a ping-pong ball. We can’t wait to see what they’ve got lined up for the competitors this time around.
We wish all the teams taking part the very best of luck!
