Mount Douglas took FIRST place in the junior engineering design competition (sailboat build) completing the course in only 4.7s narrowly beating out the second place School at 4.8 seconds. For comparison, subsequent closest teams were 10+ seconds and up.
The senior team engineering design Challenge was to build a hovercraft, specifically a hovercraft built for speed…..and the senior team was fast! They came in second place completing the course in a blistering 1.03 seconds (versus other top 10 scores in the 3.5 to 4.5 second range.).
