Skills Alberta Cardboard Boat Competition

http://skillsalberta.com/cardboard-boat-races

Armed with cardboard, duct tape and a few other odds and ends, junior and senior high school students from across the province use their skill and ingenuity to transform these materials into a vessel for the water. Not only does their "boat" need to be quick, but it must be capable of carrying passengers as well. Objectives - Design and construct a boat with only the supplied materials in 1½ hours or less. The Boat should float, carry lots of weight and go fast. Teachers - This challenge is open ended, problem solving in nature, paralleling the thrust of broad-based curriculum. It involves: design, research & presentation, principles of structure, strength, rigidity, water permeability, propulsion, friction and direction control, buoyancy and displacement, adhesives and bonding, teamwork and FUN
