Photos: Student Cardboard Boat Challenge

November 16, 2018

The Institute of Bermuda Architects [IBA] and the Bermuda Association of Professional Engineers [BAPE] held their Cardboard Boat Building Challenge yesterday afternoon [Nov 15]. School students in years 9 to 12 were invited to take part in the event which was held at the National Aquatics Centre in Devonshire.

The challenge involved teams of up to five students building a boat out of cardboard and duct tape over a two-hour period. The timed boat race saw two team members get in their boat, make their way across the 50-metre length of the pool and remove their boat from the water as fast as possible.

    It was a delight to see the enthusiasm teamwork , productivity and adventure in our young people . There were very, very few adults, understandably since many would be at work. I just happen to see it online or in the paper the same day. Well done to the sponsors, well done , to encourage skill and foresight.
