Young geniuses show their stuff
The Conseil du loisir scientifique de l’Estrie held the regional finals of the Défi apprenti genie on March 18th at the Université de Sherbrooke. One hundred and eleven elementary school students took part in this year’s final under the theme S.O.S. Pirates! The teams of participants had fortyfive minutes to make a boat as light as possible that could hold the biggest mass as possible.
All the students registered in a regional final of the Défi apprenti genie have the chance of winning one of two getaways to the Camp des Débrouillards, in Arundel near Mont Tremblant. The winners will be announced in May. To learn more about the prize winners go to reseaucdls-cls.ca.
