St. Anne Junior-Intermediate Students Practice "Test Driving" For The Future

From left to right, St. Anne Junior-Intermediate students Tricia Upfold, Lynn Denis, Christine Chartrand, Ryan Henderson, Tyler Laferriere, Isaiah Corbiere-Gascon, Mathieu Carriere and Tristen Boucher display their Spool Racers created during Science investigations.

October 24, 2011 - Recently, Mr. Thomson's Grade 6/7 class from St. Anne Catholic School in Hanmer participated in a culminating Science activity where they put together their knowledge of energy, motion, force and structures to build Spool Racers. The Sudbury Catholic School Racers were put through a thorough testing phase that included speed racing, distance endurance and design analysis. These budding Junior/Intermediate Scientists did a great job in designing some very unique racers while at the same time developing scientific skills of perseverance and creativity. Who knows? One day these young creators may be the next inventors for such events as the Molson Indy, the Indy 500, and the Grand Prix. We will wait to see. Well done Angels!
