2nd Annual Recycle Regatta

0

This year the 2014 Marine & Environmental Science Camp held its Annual Recycle Regatta! All campers received a lesson in Ocean Engineering/Naval Architecture, which highlighted the consequences of a poor ship design (and user error). They were then given the opportunity to design their own ‘sail boat’. Younger campers were given juice boxes, pencils, note cards, and 2 feet of duct tape. The older campers were allowed to select their materials from a large box of donated recycled household products (e.g. egg cartons, milk jugs, soda cans).  All campers than raced the clock in a large water tank. This year’s Marine & Environmental Science Camp winners were the ‘SS Anchors’ and ‘Sharkbait’. Congrats guys! See below for photos of boat construction and racing.
