Speedsters in the MPC
Year 7 designed their Formula One team names, cars, posters, websites and display tables in preparation for the CO2 Dragster Competition.
Term 4, 2021 On Thursday the 18th, Year 7 had a STEM day, in which the students had the opportunity to race the CO2 dragsters that they had been designing and building during class. In a knockout competition, every car had the chance to race against each other, until we were down to our final two cars. They then raced against each other in an exciting battle of reaction time and speed. However, it wasn't over once you got knocked out of the competition. The teams were also judged on their group's average speed, their table displays, the websites that they constructed, and their teamwork throughout the day. It was a great way to put the things that they had learnt about in the classroom to the test, and was really fun!
