WIT and BRT Build-A-Boat Competition
April 14, 2017
On Wednesday, April 12, 2017 Palacios High School WIT students
met with their BRT mentees from East Side Intermediate to
participate in the first Build-A-Boat competition. Students had to
work together to design, fabricate and float their boats across the
pool using different engineering concepts and keeping in mind
buoyancy. The boats were built out of a limited supply of card
board, duct tape, and pool noodles. Students had to race across the
pool, keeping their boat afloat and trying to get the fastest time.
The students had a lot of fun working together to create their
projects and learning about engineering.
