7th Graders Race CO2 Cars in Class

Students line up their CO2 cars for the first classroom race.

Seventh grade students cheered on their CO2 dragsters as they raced down the 65 foot track set up in the school gym.

The Pre-Engineering and Technology class, taught by Michael Donatelli, spent 3-4 weeks researching force and motion, while designing and building a CO2 dragster. Newton’s three laws of motion were to be used as a guide when working on their designs. At the end of the nine weeks, the class competed in a racing tournament, on a 65 feet long track, to find the fastest car in the class.

The winning car for the first nine weeks was Gianna Rhodes dragster. Her race time was 1.419 seconds, which is a speed calculation of 32 mph. Her car will be one of four to race in the Annual May Madness Dragster Tournament.

The Struthers City School District in cooperation with family and a community founded on tradition, recognize our role as a catalyst for change to enhance student achievement and develop good character as we create appropriate academic, technological, and vocational opportunities for all students.

Based on the needs of our students, we are dedicated to providing a diversified, integrated, and flexible curriculum that develops independent and responsible citizens capable of making critical decisions.
