The House Makerspace Challenge was held last Monday. Participants competed in four events: a BB-8 Droid Race, where participants used a Sphero BB-8 droid to race through a maze; a LEGO Build, where students constructed Power T’s entirely out of LEGOS; a Haiku challenge where students used Story Cubes to write haikus; and a Duct Tape Craft Challenge, where participants created wallets made entirely out of duct tape. Gonzaga House’s Todd Crenshaw was the winner of the BB8 drone race. Crenshaw navigated his way through the course in just thirty-four seconds. The Power T created by Becket House’s Alex Cox was declared the best overall design in the LEGO Challenge. The captivating haikus of Toussaint House’s Ryan Biddle were rated best by the judges, and the duct tape wallet created by Becket House’s Jay Bruns was voted the most creative and most functional. When the scores were tabulated, it was Becket House who named the victor of the Makerspace Challenge. Becket finished first with 34 points, Toussaint was second with 30 points, and Aquinas was third with 28 points. Congratulations to the Titans and special thanks to Ms. deGolian, Mr. Jones, and Ms. Zuccaro for their help facilitating and judging the contests.
The final marquee of the third quarter is the hockey game against St. X on Friday at Iceland at 8:00 PM. Friday’s game is also Senior Night.
