Participating in the annual “If I could do anything I would…..” Doodle-4 Google competition, Miami Christian School students expressed their creative and artistic abilities, while competing for various prizes. Among the students completing the first step in the competition: Abel Victores and Sofia Vasquez, fifth grade; Cherie Cordeau, sixth grade; Michelle Lopez; grade seven; Victoria Gonzalez, grade ten, and Natalya Galarza, grade eleven. In a competition that you might expect at college level, “The Mind Meld Engineering Group” directed by instructor, Remy Dou, hosted a school-wide competition of student groups fashioning model cars powered by alternative energy. The winning fifth grade team created a vehicle fueled by a rat trap and rubber bands.
