Martin Clipper Band Cares!

The Martin Clipper Band took a break from band camp to play for a band member's grandmother on Wednesday, August 17th.  Ethan Jonker's grandmother, Jamie Hayes, underwent surgery on Tuesday for breast cancer.  They surprised her by walking over from the camp and played two of their show songs for her.  Jamie was surprised and was brought to tears by their kindness.  She said that the students made her day and that they sounded amazing!

Trash Dash Champions!

Trash Dash Champions!

This year’s 8th Grade class, in conjunction with their Physics Unit on motion, built Trash Dash vehicles using an electric motor, 2 gears and 2 axles. All the other materials had to be taken from recycled or repurposed materials. After 4 weeks of building, testing, rebuilding and tweaking the classes then raced against each other based on seed times until there was a winner from each class. The 2nd hour champion was the car “Jose” built by Rayne Torres and Trent Keech, and 3rd hour was “the Silver Bullet”, built by Jason Lautenschleger and Travis Thorne. In the final showdown, the Silver Bullet came out on top, winning the best 2 out of three trials. As a final follow up, the students had to analyze why their cars performed the way they did, taking into account forces, friction, thrust, drag and Newton’s Laws of Motion! Congrats to all the kids on their ingenuity, creativity and stick-to-itiveness in building their cars.
