Wind Turbine WinnersOn Saturday, January 25, 2014, Truan Junior High held Engineering Day with ENCORE. Twenty-three students participated in designing a Mousetrap Racecar Vehicle and a model Wind Turbine.

In the Mousetrap Racecar Vehicle phase, the students created their very own vehicle and raced them against each other. The students were tasked to construct a racecar made from a mousetrap; rubber band and other common items.



The following students were the top 3 finishers:

1st Place – Oscar Morones
2nd Place – Fermin Zavala
3rd Place – Neida Hernandez


In the Wind Turbine phase of the session, the student created a model wind turbine and put it to the test using marbles. The strongest wind turbines were created by:

Tied for 1st Place
1st Place – Alex Sandoval [Moved 150 marbles]
1st Place - Erick Reyes [Moved 150 marbles]

3rd Place – Emily Salinas [Moved 80 marbles]


Great job ENCORE Engineers! The next ENCORE Camp will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2014. It will be NASA Day!
