For STEM Girls Interested in Engineering – Check Out the Cardboard Boat Regatta

When I saw the Cardboard Boat Regatta posted on this women’s college Facebook page, I just had to share it on my blog. This looks like so much fun!

From Sweet Briar College’s Facebook page:
"Saturday marked the 10th annual Cardboard Boat Regatta, a culmination of the Engineering 110 project that challenges students to create boats with cardboard and duct tape. Teams are judged on design, speed and buoyancy. This year, only one succeeded: the boat created by first-years Isabel Ahwee-Marrah, Makayla Benjamin, Marina Biel and Mack Crary not only launched, but survived the six laps to win the race."

"Sweet Briar College is a liberal arts women's college in Sweet Briar, Virginia, United States, about 12 miles north of Lynchburg, Virginia. The school's Latin motto translates as: "She who has earned the rose may bear it." The college is on 3,250 acres donated by the founding family of Indiana Fletcher Williams.” (From Wikipedia)
