THE LEARNING CENTRE PRESENTS
"START YOUR ENGINES"
Formula One 3D Puzzle Contest

 

The Vanier College Learning Centre, in conjunction with the St. Laurent- based company Wrebbit Inc. and the Quebec Ministry of Education, held a challenging 3D puzzle contest on April 21, 1999.

Ten teams of students competed with each other to rebuild - in puzzle form - Jacques Villeneuve's Formula 1 racing car. Each team had been previously given 30 minutes "prep" time to strategize and begin to plan their building efforts.

On the contest day, all the teams assembled in Vanier's new Student Mall and the signal to start was given. Excitement mounted as teams focused their attention, assembled different sections of the car, and then added the final puzzle pieces.

First place winners
Chris Watson, Timothy Tabing, Coleman Benson, and Prashant Shandilya took only 55 minutes to complete their car. The second place team of James Britton, Kris Brunner, Giovanni Calvi, and Fabio Bandera were right behind with 64 minutes.

The winners attributed their success to teamwork - which was what the contest was all about, as well as getting to meet new friends. Thanks to Wrebbit Inc., the top two teams each went home with a Formula 1 puzzle. Watch out next year for a new 3D puzzle contest!

We now invite you to take a look at some photos taken at the contest by student photographer
