The Struthers High School Physics students in Ronald Lesko’s class recently competed as two teams in the annual YSU Penguin Regatta, where they were awarded at total of 9 trophies.
Lesko’s students were tasked to work together as teams to build a boat to compete with in the annual regatta. Lesko said, “I set numerous requirements for my students that their boats had to meet, such a every student in class had to fit in their boat. This project was a challenge but their hard work definitely paid off.”
Their boats were awarded the top two trophies in 4 out of 5 of the following categories:
Show Boat Race: 1st and 2nd place
Dotted Line Race: 1st and 3rd place
Greatest Weight Boat: tied for 2nd place
Presentation: 1st and 2nd place

The entire Struthers High School staff would like congratulate all of the team members and Mr. Lesko for a job well done.
