Annual Harris Federation Egg Race - Results!

Egg race 1On Wednesday afternoon three Year 7 students from Harris Boys' Academy pitted their wits against the rest of the federation in the annual Harris Federation Egg Race

Lalloh, Hamza and Miqdam would be required to display excellent problem-solving, lateral thinking and teamwork skills if they were to compete with the other gifted students that had been selected to take part in the competition. 

The competition consisted of two components; a difficult science-related quiz and an equally tricky engineering challenge. During the engineering challenge the boys needed to design and build a catapult that could shoot a marshmallow using a selection of materials; lollipops sticks, paper cups, spoons and elastic bands to name a few.

First up was the quiz, where the Harris boys didn't disappoint. They managed to answer a very respectable 16 out of 25 questions correctly, putting them in second place behind Harris Merton as they moved onto the engineering challenge.

The catapults would be judged initially on the distance they could fire the marshmallow and secondly their accuracy, aiming to land the marshmallow into a target zone (pictured). Despite some last minute manufacturing problems, the boys managed to propel their marshmallow the fifth furthest and sat comfortably in second position as we moved into the accuracy challenge.Egg race 2

Surprisingly, in the accuracy challenge not one academy managed to land any of their three marshmallows into any of the scoring zones, giving the HBAED boys a real shot at Egg Race glory.

The Harris boys proved to be the only academy that would land not one but two of their marshmallows into the scoring zones. However, some incredible misfortune ensued, the scoring zone that the boys had landed in was the -5 zone, meaning they were deducted 10 points, despite being the only academy to actually register a score. 

The boys took the loss in good heart and gave a really good account for themselves on the day against some very talented students.

Please congratulate Lalloh, Hamza and Miqdam if you see them around the school.

Mr. Nowers
