2017 Cardboard Boat Regatta

Students in Br. Chris' Engineering II class were tasked with building a boat. The hitch, this boat could only be made out of cardboard and duct tape. The students were split into four groups and had to first design their boat and make a mini model, then based on their first construction move forward with the life size version.
The goal of the task was not just to have a boat that would float and win (Congratulations to Team 2!) but to learn from their mistakes and be able to explain how they would make their boat better in the future.

Watch our fun video of the regatta to see what the groups need to work on moving forward.
