On a toboggan are, from left Gordon Stowe, Oliver Schnider, and Caitlin Lewis. More than 100 students from Stanton Middle School in Kent hit the toboggan runs at Cleveland MetroParks recently. The eighth-graders were selected to go based on their academic achievements and their desire to brave the elements, according to Joe Shaw, social studies teacher. Shaw said the students quickly surmised that the more weight on the sled, the faster it would go. So there was a little math, and a little physics, he said with a laugh. The students had a blast.
