Students of Ms. Eastman’s science class and Mr. Collins’ math class designed and rendered variations on a standard soapbox racer to come up with the fastest, most effective shape. Shown above in the driver’s seat is Sam Anderson; standing is teammate Temple Siemer, who cheered him on. The winning racer was designed and built by Peter Skidmore, Ashley Abnadell and Rosemary Burmester. (Photo by Susan Gartner)
