Future Engineers Take Flight

The annual glider contest was held in the north gym on June 4th. The grade 11 engineering design classes had spent the past couple of weeks making gliders out of corrugated cardboard, foam-core and corrugated plastic. The gliders this year were among the best Ms. Tevlin had ever seen with the some of them travelling 30 meters. Congratulations to the winning team of Susheen, Varun and Samuel.

Danforth Trebuchet Contest: It was a Splash!

Danforth’s annual trebuchet contest took place at lunch Wed. May 31st. Four teams of students from the grade 12 Engineering Design class built large wooden siege weapons to fire water balloons at Danforth staff. We would like to thank all of the people who volunteered to be targets and especially Mr. Weight for showing up with his tiny butterfly net which worked really well until a balloon smashed it too hard. The winning team were the Beachcombers and at the end of the competition the students got to be a target en masse.
