This Wednesday, students from grades 9 to 12 participated in the University of Waterloo’s Canadian Computing Contest. Students could choose to either undertake the junior level or the senior level in order to qualify for the Canadian Computing Olympiad in May.
The grade 12 AP Physics C students demoed their summative projects, a remote soil sampler and analyzer. It consisted of a robotic arm that could operate autonomously to sample soil in its surroundings at a position selected by the user from a live camera feed. Data such as the mass, temperature, reflective spectra, and volume were returned as appropriate.
This week, the Kindness Cafe held by Undercover Kindness Garneau took place at lunch in the cafeteria. Students dropped by to write down compliments or submit nice comments into an anonymous forum. The event, which featured various snacks and treats, was an overall success.
This Thursday, the first Unhealthy Food Sale of the schoolyear was held on the first floor during lunch. Many student-run initiatives, such as HOSA and Bridge Club, sold an assortment of delectable food items – the likes of cheesecake, brownies, and samosas – to raise money for their club budget.
