Sailing Through Success and Failure

In our last blog post of the school year, we are spotlighting our Honors Engineering end of the year project!  The students were tasked with building a boat that can hold 1 or 2 members of their team and move across the pool 25 yards. The only building materials that they were given was glue, paint, small amount of plywood and paper.  The students were tasked with keeping a journal of their building experience. The students met early this past Saturday to attempt their trek across the pool.  For some it was a dry success, others a wet failure but either way they had fun, and learned engineering skills!

Check out some pictures of the event, including a Little Lancer learning about the boat.
