Rollercoaster is prize idea

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS from Edlington School’s feeder schools went head to head in the final of a technology challenge set by the Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust.

Pupils were set the challenge back in the classroom by staff from the trust two months ago, which was to design an imaginary new leisure use for the ice caps area of The Dome and to produce marketing materials for the facility.

At the final event they presented their models along with their research and marketing campaigns to a judging panel from the trust, which runs venues including the Doncaster Dome.

The Mixed Fun team from St Mary’s Primary School in Tickhill were the outright winners, designing a multi-use area which included a rollercoaster, archery and crazy golf.
