Flying off to the AVC State Finals again!

Last Friday 19 May, eight of our Year 8 Technology students travelled to Ulladulla High School to take part in the Aeronautical Velocity Challenge (AVC) Regional Final. Teams from Bowral to Merimbula competed against each other to build their planes and rockets in the time period.

The planes team of Micah P, Nathan S and Harrison T managed to produce a very fast plane, which came second by 0.02 of a second, and a height plane that won their round. Unfortunately, they had trouble in the dog fights and didn't place.

The rocket team of Isabelle M, Hailey F, Mia Hunter and Courtney Nielsen faced some very difficult conditions, with rain and a sting headwind but still managed a respectable distance of 69.5m, which placed them 3rd by only 2 meters.

Both teams received wild card entries into the State Final which is on 9 June at the University of Wollongong.
