Engineering and robotics students at L.P. Card left it all on the track on Friday's race-car throwdown at the school. Under the direction of engineering teacher David Scarcella, a group of 12 Memorial High students integrated their skills and creativity for a heated race to the finish line.
Students were given instructions to build their own race cars out of everyday items such as rubber bands, cardboard, CDs and popsicle sticks.
Students had to use original ideas, create their own sketches and design the motorless race cars. Winners Mario Hernandez and Braden Cain (at right) propelled their cars more than 45 feet across the shop. Other event photos follow.
