The Great Marble Drop is complete. Students in Stephen Dickey’s Engineering class had to use four obstacles to make their marbles travel for at least 30 seconds. They also had to use a nine-step process, called the Engineering Design Algorithm, to produce their project. Each group of two had four attempts to make it all work.

Seniors Phillip Herd and Caroline Parker had one of the fastest marbles, at 29 seconds – but that’s not a good thing… And Meredith Mallick ’17 and Anna Puff ’17 almost doubled that speed, at 15 seconds. Again… not the goal.

The winning pair, with a slow-marble average of 47 seconds, was Ann Staniford ’17 and Chris Cooper ’17.
