Year 8 Science Egg Race

Year 8 have been busy planning and designing contraptions to propel a tennis ball as far as possible.

On Friday 20th June the contraptions were built and perfected for the competition. For once we were bathed in sunshine as we measured the distances covered out behind the Sports Hall. Year 8 are to be congratulated for their creativity and ingenuity! The winners were ‘The Tankatrons’ in 8M comprising Mark McNeill, Peter McConaghie, James McCormick, James Currie and Jensen Daley with a winning throw of 31.7 m. The Rainbows from 8M were in second place with a throw of 19m and third place was awarded to The B Team from 8W.
