On Thursday 28th March 2013 We had a wonderful time creating Holgate’s first fastest rubber band racer. Mr Maxfield tried to beat the year 8 students by building his own, and whilst it looked very good, we found at the race it just didn’t have the speed! The students worked hard over Science week to build and test their rubber band racers, and we had an exciting race at lunch time.
We tested the racers in Nabbs well, and Mr Maxfield’s racer did well with the distance (over 10m) but the winners were Cory and William with a speed of 4.01m/s, who outraced the pack. Second place went to Joe with a speed of 2.45m/s.
