8th Graders Headed to Olympiad

On February 23rd, a group of E.P. Todd 8th graders will attend the Science Olympiad Newberry College.

These events include:

  • A team designs and builds a Boomilever meeting requirements to support a minimum load and achieve the highest structural efficiency.
  • A team constructs a vehicle that uses electrical energy as its sole means of propulsion to travel a specified distance and stop as close as possible to a Target Point.
  • A team designs, builds, and tests a Roller Coaster track to guide a ball/sphere that uses gravitational potential energy as its sole means of propulsion to travel as close as possible to a Target Time.
  • A team designs, constructs, and tests elastic-launched gliders to achieve the maximum time aloft.
