The Dunk Tank project started life as a possible finale for a Design Technology programming competition. The idea is that boys will make a robot in the summer term classes, then be shown a maze that they will program their robot around at the end of the project as a competition. The successful robot will complete the course and hit a switch that will trigger the dunk tank - drenching a Don of their choice - or at least one who agrees to it!
All the Dunk Tank components were designed and made by WOCM's Remove Design Technology class: William Brooks-Ward; Thomas Isaacs; William Jack; Benjamin Mather; Jack Metcalfe; George Perkins; Harry Rugman; Jack Sheldon; Jeremy Shelton-Agar; Charles Taylour; William Way; Harry Young.
Apart from being a fun way to learn about designing structures, materials and construction techniques, it also opened up the potential to raise some money for a charity that some Dons have done voluntary work for in the past, Oxford's Gatehouse.
Please follow the link below to watch Charles Taylour, Remove, A Social testing the Dunk Tank.

Despite seeing Charles Taylour, Remove, A Social being dunked, lots of Dons have already volunteered. We will have to wait and see just how much money we raise!
