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! It was an amazing experience to see all the good work and learning that this group of students put into our race car going down the track for the first time last June. We were very pleased with how the car tested out and performed and were able to get a student driver behind the wheel competing in elimination rounds. They placed 12th out of 22 drivers.
We are looking forward to getting on the track again this spring and getting more seat time for our student drivers. We are grateful for the support we have had getting the program off the ground and are looking forward to improving the performance and consistency of the car as we prepare to participate in drag racing with the BC Secondary School Motorsports Association again in 2018.
