Enrichment Program Students Take Part in the “Ultimate Challenge”

November 17, 2004 - Grade 7, 8, 9 & 10 students from the Enrichment Program at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board will be participating in the “Ultimate Challenge” on Friday, November 19, 2004 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Marymount Academy in the school’s gymnasium.

Forty students will be divided into 5 groups and will be given a number of challenges that they will have to “brain storm” in order to effect the desired results. Using only basic resources such as a skate board, duct tape, elastic, rope, string, paper and card board, students must; (1) design and create an apparatus that will hit a target from a distance of 10 ft. (2) build a car that will be able to negotiate an obstacle course and (3) design and create a robotic arm that will be able to grasp an object

The students will be given the morning to design and construct the car, shooting device and robotic arm with the actual race taking place from 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Marymount Academy gymnasium. Students must then make use of these three devices to negotiate a jungle course and rescue a rare monkey from an obscure mountain. The students will be marked on the quality and design of the three apparatus, time taken to execute the obstacle course, and the degree of success of the mission.
