Machine Contest a page-turner for physics students

Students in AP Physics (PACE) and Accelerated Physics participated in last night’s 29th annual Pius X Machine Contest. Teams of students built machines with at least 20 different steps that would TURN A PAGE OF A BOOK. The teams were judged on their ingenuity and on whether their machine successfully completed the task.

This year’s winning teams are:
