Formula-A Propeller Driven Car Race

Well done to all contestants who entered the Formula-A propeller driven car race that was held on Tuesday the 6th of December, 2016 in the school gym. Two Year 7 classes from Coast Whanau competed against two Year 10 option classes in the construction and racing of their cars. Students applied their knowledge of Maths and Science and used simple recycled items to make their propeller driven cars. In Technology students have learned about electronics, componentry and building simple electric circuits.  High levels of fun, anticipation and excitement were observed throughout the competition!  Thank you to Mr Basil Taha for leading this wonderful event.

Congratulations to the winners:
1st Place: Grand race winner: Patrick Wang from 10W2
2nd Place: Hugo Lai from 7C1
3rd Place: Jeo Hanns Turtal and Andy Soryath from 7C2
