Science
April has been a busy month in Science for the Grade 7 and 8 students.  
 
On April 26th Josh and Alex competed in the You Be The Chemist® Canada – Guelph Regional Challenge at the University of Guelph.  This was a high intensity individual competition that comprised five knock out rounds of questions.  We are very proud of both boy's interest and willingness to participate in this event and special congratulations go to Alex who came 3rd overall.
 
On April 27th we sent 3 teams to the Let’s Talk Science Challenge at the University of Waterloo.  Each team of 4 students had to prepare to be tested in 8 areas of science:- Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Engineering and Technology, Space Science, Earth Science, Environmental Science, and Mathematics.  In addition to which they were each given a design challenge to complete.
 
All the students are to be commended for their commitment to do their best in this event, their teamwork, and their lateral thinking in the design challenge.  We extend our congratulations to the team "RCA Einsteins" (Marcus, Abby, Alex, and Kasper) who not only achieved 100% on their design challenge but came 4th overall.
