The EMSB presented its first Science Olympiad at Laurier Macdonald High in St. Léonard. This event had 288 Cycle III elementary and Cycle I secondary students from 27 participating schools test their creativity and scientific knowledge by competing in two specific, science-related challenges. “ I am not going to crack” involved teams building a bridge from popsicle sticks that supported the greatest load of water bottles. Royal West Academy in Montreal West came in first place followed by Elizabeth Ballantyne School, also from Montreal West, in second and John F. Kennedy High School from St. Michel in third. “Blast Off” had teams building small rockets with straws and paper to see which one flew the greatest horizontal distance. Honoré-Mercier from St. Léonard came in first, with East Hill from RDP second and FACE School from downtown third.
