On March 2, your Eden Flyers were supposed to make the trip to the beautiful city of Waterloo, Ontario for the Provinical Cardboard Competition at the Waterloo Recreation Center. Disappointingly, the weather did not co-operate and we were snowed out. Sadly, George Lister, Alexis Anderson, Adam Neufeld and Andrew Klassen did not have the opportunity to bring home the hardware and for once, a team from somewhere other than the DSBN was able to win the provincials.
DSBN Tech Challenges 2017
Eden students were successful once again at this year’s DSBN Technological Skills Challenges. The challenges give students an opportunity to showcase their skills by competing in various events related to the skilled trades and technologies. The following are the Eden medal winners from this year’s competitions. Congratulations to all of our students that participated!
This year we had 4 entries in the local robotics competition at our own high school. and at the end of the day the decision was made to manufacture one new robot and use an existing one for skills in Waterloo. The team of Owen Zhou, Scott Hooper, Chris Reimer and Nick Andres started from scratch and were ready in time for the May Provincial Competition.
Congratulations to Samson Wu for finishing 4th in the province in Computer Aided Manufacturing and to the robotics squad of Owen Zhou, Scott Hooper, Chris Reimer and Nick Andres who finished 10th in the province out of 23 teams that scored points in the round robin play. Jacob Martens finished 6th in the individual Carpentry competition.
On Oct 4, 2017, 20 teams travelled to the YMCA Pool in order to qualify to represent Eden at the Skills Ontario Provincial Qualifier scheduled for December in Toronto or London. The winning teams at the end of the afternoon were Ben Busca and Tyler Bush in R+M Mobile with a boat that sped down the pool in 13.54 seconds and held 479 lbs and the team of Peter Chen and James Fitze in The End which was paddled down the pool in a time of 14.5 seconds and held a weight of 496 lbs.
On Monday, November 27, your Eden Flyers made the trip to Leamington in order to take part in the Regional Cardboard Boat Event put on by Skills Ontario. After a long, 3.5 hour, gruelling van ride, we unloaded at our destination for our sleepover before the event scheduled the next day at The Leamington Recreation Center. After very little sleep,your cardboard boat heroes fueled up at a local greasy spoon and then came out building. in an attempt to qualify for this year's provincials by finishing in the top three. After the two hours of building had finished, both Eden squads were confident going into the testing portion of the competition. At the end of the day,both teams finished in the top 3 thereby qualifying for the Provincials in March. The silver medal boat was powered down the pool by peter Chen in 27 seconds. The boat held a grand total of 550 lbs before it sank. The gold medal boat cruised down the pool in 18 seconds with Tyler Bush at the helm. Their boat held an impressive 710 lbs before sinking. Congratulations to James Fitze, Gabe Maskaluk, Ben Busca, Owen Zhou, Bennett Warkentin and Samson Wu who along with Tyler and Peter will be heading to the beautiful town of Waterloo, Ontario in March to compete in the Provincial Championship competition.
