FMS Competes In First Annual Slowest Ramp Competition
By: Heather Blakely
 
The 7th grade Science students in Ms. Blakely's classes competed in the First Annual Slowest Ramp Competition against Mr. Blakely's 8th grade STEAM class from Pekin. The goal was to create a ramp in which a wiffle golf ball rolled down at the slowest possible rate without stopping. The winning ramp came from Fairfield with a time of 20.01 seconds! This activity meets the Engineering Design standards of the Next Generation Science Standards.
