The design & technology department have been working with the boat club to design and build a rowing boat.
Bill Downing, the design & technology technician, put his engineering skills to the test by using a laser cutter to construct the rowing boat from sheets of plywood. Mark Wilkinson, our Director of Rowing and a rowing expert, aided the design of the boat which was tested by Isaac Workman in year 13. The boat was a great success and will be back in the water soon for more testing and development.
The two departments will continue to work together to improve the design of the boat with the aim of getting more students involved so that they can builds their own boats.
