 A Race to Survival

Students designed a small racecar similar to what the students do in JMS! Students were judged on design, cost and speed of their cars. They could use any form of power to propel their car (small motor, fans, wind up mechanism, e.t.c.).

Rube Goldberg Machine

What would you do if you were stranded on a desert island? Could you build a shelter? Gather food? Purify water? Signal for help? Build a raft? What would you do to keep yourself entertained or have fun when you are alone on this island? Your mission is to create a machine featuring a Rube Goldberg project that would help you survive, stay entertained, or escape the island.

Ready, Set, Catapult

The castle isn't going to invade itself! For this competition, students created a catapult and used it to launch marshmallows into baskets to earn points to enter the castle.
