Sudbury Catholic Students Advance to Championship Rounds in the Skills Ontario’s JUNK DRAWER RACES!
Grades 2-12 students across the province were invited to participate in the 2nd annual Skills Ontario’s Junk Drawer Races! In this program, students had fun while exploring various challenges to build their skills and explore different pathways for their future.
This past week the winners of the Regional round of the competition were announced on Skills Ontario’s YouTube Channel.
We are excited to report our results in the following competitions:
Grade 4/5 Cardboard Car Races
St. James placed 1st & 3rd
Grade 6/7Paper Glider Competition
Bishop Alexander Carter placed 1st & 3rd as well as St. Paul’s 2nd
Grade 8 Paper Hydraulic Crane Challenge
Bishop Alexander Carter placed 1st & 2nd
These teams will be competing in the Provincial Championship round and will have until March 3rd to review their existing blueprints, potentially modify their designs to meet the provincial challenge and construction requirements while explaining their modifications and submit their new submissions. Provincial Submissions will be evaluated by industry volunteers, and the top three teams will be awarded prizes by Skills Ontario. Winning teams will be notified by March 27th. We wish our students the best of luck and thank Skills Ontario, industry partners, the Government of Ontario and Bombardier for giving our students a unique experiential learning opportunity.
