This week in Systems Tech class the students competed against each other cardboard, duct tape and a swimming pool. The students were given the challenge of creating a boat using one hundred square feet of cardboard and sixty meters of tape. They were given eight work days to complete the assignment. The main goal of this is to teach the students about the design progress.

Systems Tech teacher Paul Cross had certain things he was looking for in order to determine the winning boat.

“They were judged on distance, teamwork, and their use of time in class.” said Cross.

The winning boat had tape along the bottom to keep it from absorbing water, and made it last the longest.
