Shaker Road Elementary hosted the championship event for their egg car races. After many car inspections and trial races, the top four cars from each class met up for the final match to race with each other. The students gathered in the cafeteria to cheer each other on.
The egg cars were due a week before the series of races for inspection. Some were sent back to the pit stop for changes so they would comply with the rule book. Cars were expected to meet size specifications and have part of the egg exposed. Students were able to apply what they had learned in the classroom about force, weight, and gravity to their car designs to see the importance of each element first-hand. Each car was created differently, allowing the students to express themselves in the design process and make each car unique. The egg cars raced down a ramp to see who could make it to the bottom first, with their egg still intact.
The students at Shaker Road Elementary displayed excellent sportsmanship. Teachers and students worked together to make sure that the event ran smoothly, safely, and was enjoyable for all.
Congratulations to all of our racers involved! We are proud of your EGGcellent work.
