Cardboard Regatta: Fastest times in history
Cardboard Regatta: Fastest times in history

This year's senior Engineering Design and Development students have earned the bragging rights to the fastest, most efficient races yet when it comes to the annual Cardboard Regatta. 

Students work in teams to design their boat, using primarily cardboard and duct tape. Boats must support three students who then paddle across the pool and back (preferably, without sinking).

While the race is done in fun, there is a certain swagger that comes with winning, and it's clear the students love the challenge. And several teachers bring their classes to observe, no doubt preparing future classes to take up the challenge themselves.
