Friday, Sept. 19, was a beautiful day for a boat race! After weeks of designing and testing scale models, the 8th grade Integrated Science students of Van Buren Middle School met at Lincoln Park to race their kayaks across the fountain. Coming in first at 28 seconds (!) were "The Pirates": Lucy (driver), Jenna, and Tristan. In second place at 38 seconds was "The Shrek": Daniel (driver), Gavin, and Gabe. Close behind in third place at 42 seconds was "Heart of Gold": Elli (driver), Ava, and Katie.
Mr. Doug Callinan and Mrs. Jill Spurlin wish to thank the Kettering Parks and Rec Department for supporting this annual STEM project. See you next year!
