Students go the distance in 3D-printed car race

With googly eyes, feathers, and hand-drawn faces, 3D-printed cars sped down a ramp into glory for Santa Catalina School's second annual 3D Design Derby Race during Spirit Day on May 26.

The students' task: Design a car no more than 6 cm. wide, 10 cm. long, and 8 cm. tall. Participants raced eight cars over three heats, competing for 3D-printed trophies in four categories:

Farthest Car: Batmobile by CC '23
Best Design: Classic Chevy by Maddy '22
Most Innovative: Futuristic Air Pod by Tarn '23
Thomas Edison Award: Lemon Chicken by Elisabeth '22
