Taking A Cardboard Boat Ride … Across The Middle School Pool

A cool event (and program) from the school district … this sounds like fun.

Students from South Milwaukee High School’s new Technology & Engineering Academy will be conducting their first annual cardboard boat regatta on Monday, October 13.

While learning about engineering concepts, teams of three students are designing full-sized boats for two of them to actually row across the middle school pool and back.  The boats are built out of only cardboard, clear packing tape, and a little hot glue.  Their engineering success or failure will be evident when they enter the water for the first time.

 Come cheer the students on beginning at 4:00 (doors open at 3:30).  We hope to see you there, and please bring family and friends!
