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.
