PUPILS from five schools showed off their technical skills in the annual Thomas Cowley High School Technology Challenge Day.

They were each set three challenges with the winning team receiving a trophy along with individual prizes.

The first challenge was to design and create a craft to transport 25 sugar cubes across a pond in the fastest time.

The second challenge was to design and create a land yacht to transport a egg the furthest distance using only wind power.

The third challenge was to design and create a batch of four identical clocks based on the theme of the 2012 Olympics.

The competition was very fierce with each of the five teams producing some outstanding results.

The overall winners were pupils from Gosberton Clough and Risegate Primary.
