Tryon Elementary School fifth graders recently completed their unit of study on force and motion. They put their knowledge to the test with the school’s fourth annual Edible Car Contest. Students built their cars from anything edible and then competed to see whose design could roll the farthest. Cars were made of fruits, vegetables, marshmallows, dry pasta, donuts, bagels, rice crispy treats, rice cakes, cookies, candy and anything in between. The grand prize winner was Phil Burney and his potato and carrot car (below). Second place was Holden Owens and third place was John Lucas Kornmayer. Class winners were Phil Burney – first place, Hayden Gary – second place and Rachel Childers – third place, in Ms. Evans class. Holden Owens – first place, Rick Burney – second place and Noah Frazier – third place, in Mrs. Crosby’s class. Chris Phipps – first place, John Lucas Kornmayer – second place and Lily Nelson – third place, in Mrs. Sharpe’s class. All winners are shown above. (photos submitted by Denise Corcoran)
