Highland Olympics in Technology or HOT for short,
has now become Highland Schools Technology Challenge or HSTC.
This is a project which started in 2012 in Highland involving a transition project involving both secondary and primary schools in the Highland Council area.
It was attempting to go - Faster - Higher - and Stronger with Technology.
As the Olympics are now heading of to Rio, the competition has now also moved on.
Our most recent event took place at NIGG Village Hall
