SCDSB Students Take it Outside

March 15, 2005 - Grade seven students taking part in the Enrichment Program offered by the Sudbury Catholic District School Board put their creative and critical thinking skills to work when challenged to design and build a scale model of a bobsled recently.

The knowledge and understanding of friction, drag, mass, gravity, acceleration and velocity were a must in this exercise. Bobsleds were tested on a snow-packed track designed and built by the students. The challenge provided the students with hands-on experience with the process of design including the stages of investigation, creation, and reflection.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to trade pencils and books for hats and mitts to enjoy a great outdoor experience.
