Franklin Academy Pinewood Derby

Students on Teams B and C participated yesterday in a modified Franklin Academy Pinewood Derby. During this second term of the school year these students learned the physics behind automobiles and put this knowledge to work in their model car designs. Then, they constructed a 15-foot wooden track to test each car's aerodynamic qualities in head-to-head competitions. Classmates cheered the competitors as they demonstrated their creative designs and the mastery of car physics on derby day. In the end, the "Flying Radish" racing team emerged victorious, taking home the derby trophy and the prize of Ramen Noodles.
