The Falcons Motor Club is a small group of students who share a passion for learning about and working on mechanical things. They meet after school and projects have included a dirt bike, a couple of motorcycles, and a few cars.
The Motor Club Goals are:
- Learning: Students learn about mechanical things, tools, and problem-solving
- Experience: Students get their hands dirty while being a part of something with a tangible, authentic result
- Community: Students in the club connect with each other across grades, with teachers outside of class and with other people outside of our school community
- Service: Use our facilities, time, and knowledge to serve others and equips students to gain skills that can be of service to others outside of school.
Motor Club Update
Thank-you to everyone who supported us getting our drag racing program off the ground! We just finished first full season of racing in the British Columbia Secondary Schools Motorsports Association with our 1980 Cutlass 442. We kept getting faster every race and were consistently running high 13s in the ¼ mile during our last two race days–a very respectable time for a car with a full interior.
This year we are looking forward to a new group of drivers getting some seat time as well as adding some younger students to our crew. We also working on adding a second car (a 1980 Camaro Z28) to our team. We hope to build it this off season and have it on the track this spring.
If you are interested in supporting the team, see the document below or contact Adrian Vandenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
