CARDBOARD BOAT REGATTA
The Technology & Engineering Academy hosted its 3rd Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta on Wednesday, January 4th, 2017 in the Middle School pool. TEA Faculty coordinating the event were Mr. Erik Wolbach and Ms. Brittany Jadin.
Each year the TEA students are tasked with designing and building a boat to carry two students across the pool and back in a single elimination tournament. The boats are created using only corrugated cardboard and clear packing tape. Various awards are given for various performances such as the Titanic, Toilet Bowl, and Submarine awards. Below is a link to last year's video of the race by Fox 6 News.
This year, the race was opened up to staff members to build and enter their own boats.
