Brewer High School Engineering and Physics Students Race Cardboard Boats During Annual Regatta

More than 200 students in Brewer High School's engineering and physics classes designed and created 48 cardboard boats made solely out of cardboard and duct tape.More than 200 students in Brewer High School's engineering and physics classes designed and created 48 cardboard boats made solely out of cardboard and duct tape.
 
Teams of four then raced across the school pond with hopes that the boats would carry two "crew members" at a time during the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta on May 17.
 
Students used engineering principals to design their boats and calculated buoyancy force in physics to determine how the boats would hold up.
 
The crew of the winning boat ... with a 2:37 roundtrip time ... was Will Intfen, Jacob Holland, Nathan Segovia, Lee Ugarte and Alex Valdez (pictured).
