The cheers shook Hyman Hall at each countdown during today's Nerdy Derby Race -- the culmination of two weeks of design, engineering and creative construction by our third graders.
Working in teams, the boys had been charged with creating a mini-car that would win one of three races down a 50-foot track: Slowest, Fastest or King of the Hill (the car that stops closest to the top of the hill at mid track).
The project entailed use of the engineering design cycle and engaged the boys in educational, interactive and fun design experiences through problem solving and collaborative challenges.
Congratulations to the winning teams, teachers, and to all of the boys for their effort, creativity, sportsmanship, teamwork, and enthusiasm. What a fun way to begin Spring Break!
