A group of Grade 11 and 12 students also gave up their Saturday to head up to UBC to complete in the Physics Olympics.

The team had been working on the ‘pre-build’ part of the competition for a couple weeks. They had to make a wind turbine and a device that lowered a ball a vertical distance of 1m as slow as possible. Here is a video and a photo of their solution:
