The grade 9 MaST classes were given the project of designing and constructing an iPad case using materials of their choice like duct tape, cloth, denim, etc.  The purpose of this project was to construct an Ipad case with minimum surface area.  The iPad case also had to provide protection  for the iPad, the case needed to have an open and close mechanism, and a special feature.  This project was completed during the measurement unit.

The cases designed by the grade 9s were cleverly designed and surpasses all the minimum surface area requirements, protection capabilities and unique features.

 Students in Grade 12 Engineering have been building and refining their hydraulic arms over the past few weeks and competed yesterday head to head to see which group could remove the most objects from the box of "goodies".  Building the arms is a difficult engineering challenge and one requiring a lot of team effort.

Up next for Grade 12 Engineering is the Trebuchet competition.
