Engineering Olympics at UVic

Students did a great job on both design challenges at the UVic Engineering Olympics. One of the groups was able to build the highest structure of the day (2 storeys) that could hold a heavy load of playdough, 2 large batteries, and a chain of paper clips—awesome job! All the structures were build with only a few cards and two sections of tape.
For the large group challenge students did a fantastic job getting the marble into the cup many times after riding a “roller coaster” during the practice runs, but unfortunately, our luck ran out when it came time to judging. Super job again and great teamwork!
A few other activities students participated in were a clean water and parachuting activity. We also had the opportunity to tour the EcoSat and AUVic clubs, which were interesting and informative. Overall it was an awesome day for our students.
