Atoms STEAM on to Victory at the MOST
Saturday, October 19, 2019—Atoms competed in the MOST's CNY Steamboat Challenge, and did what our Atoms do best … they came to compete and WON! With over 60 teams participating from across Central New York, we are proud of our students for taking home not only 1st place, but 2nd, 3rd and 4th place, as well for the high school competition. Middle School and the Elementary school were not far behind with taking home 3rd and 4th place.
Participants were tasked to work in teams of up to here to build a steamboat out of recycled materials that runs on steam created by the heat of a tea candle. The boats raced on 3" of water in an inflatable raceway that measures 110" long by 6" wide. Participants were judged by the following criteria.
- Speed of boat
- Team's presentation to judges about how they built the boat and what they learned
- Team's creativity and innovation in designing the boat
