Three teams from Axtell will compete at Destination Imagination’s Global Finals May 25-28 in Knoxville, Tenn. The teams qualified during their Sandhills Regional competition at UNK April 2.
The group of senior boys; Sam Mellema, Brandon Easton, Adam Lundeen, Ben Peterson, and Evan Bertrand, took first place in the Pace of Change competition. The scientific challenge requires the group to design and build a vehicle that will carry at least one team member across the presentation site multiple times. To really put their skills to the test, they must then change the propulsion system and vehicle movement method during their presentation. To prepare for the finals, the boys are fine tuning their vehicle to provide an optimum performance.
