     Eighth grade student Cody Hockenberry of Akron Middle School was the winner of the Technology class skimmer car competition held on Launch Day, November 30th. Students were challenged by their teacher, Mrs. Christina O'Malley (right), to use their engineering and science skills to balance the forces of gravity and lift while overcoming the forces of friction and drag. Hockenberry's car traveled 134 feet! Ian Litfin came in second place at 128 feet and Kayla Murray was third at 123.5 feet. 
     The competition featured a $100 prize donation to the winner's charity of choice compliments of Brian and Jayne Perry. Cody chose to donate his winnings to Road 2 Recovery for Scotty Cranmer, a professional BMX biker who suffered a devastating accident requiring multiple surgeries and rehabilitation.
