28th Annual Battery Car Race - 3rd Place

One of my sixth grade gifted team (Chloe McDevitt, Paisley Hendrickson, and Sydney Smith) won 3rd place in Artistic Design for the car that they designed and built for the 28th Annual Battery Car Race today at Duquesne University.  There were 46 cars in the competition from 13 different schools.
The following schools attended the event with us:
Archangel Gabriel
Carson MS
David E. Williams
Ingomar MS
Jefferson Hills Elementary
Marshall MS
South Park
Tenth Street
West Jefferson Hills
There were a some new rules for this year's competition.  The students had to pick a state and design their car to look like the shape of the state that they chose.  In addition, they had to research and write about how recycling is handled in that state. 
The girls qualified for the semifinals; unfortunately, they lost twice during the semifinals and did not make it to the finals.
