Math Challengers Compete at UBC
Kudos to the Math Challenger participants (Angel, Emily, Melissa, Jalisa and Rainy) for spending their Saturday at UBC yesterday competing in the Math Challengers provincial.
The girls didn’t bring home the championship trophy, but were happy to have made it this far. Great job, girls!
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:
