KPDSB students take 1st and 3rd place in Provincial Skills Competition

26 Apr. 2024

New Prospect School (Dryden) intermediate students Olivia McArthur and Emerson Dale placed 1st in the province with their Crane-a-saurus Rex design and model which carried a load of 200g through the load test in 1.89 seconds!

Golden Learning Centre (Balmertown) intermediate students Liam Chantigny, Jacob Ewen, Allie Russell and Sasha Cabile also placed in the provincial championship, taking 3rd!


This year KPDSB had more than 40 teams of students participate in the Regional Round of the Hydraulic Crane Competition. Three KPDSB teams placed in the top 3 in the Far North region and two of those teams placed in the top three in the province-wide championship round this week!

The skills in the Junk Drawer Races competitions are highly correlated with the Engineering and Design Process in the Ontario Science curriculum. Students use an approved materials list and scope to design, build, and adjust their projects to carry out a specific test. For the cranes, the test consisted of a timed load test where they had to lift, turn (both directions), and lower their cranes.
