The grade 7 and 8 students at Prince Charles elementary are very excited to be designing and building cardboard boats for the upcoming races at the Wayne Gretzky aquatic center on January 26th.
For over 20 years, Skills Ontario has been hosting Cardboard Boat Races across Ontario, testing the student’s ability to build a floating structure that will outperform all others in speed and weight challenges. According to the skills Canada website, “Teams of four are provided all the necessary materials to build a boat in just two hours. Students must bring their problem-solving, teamwork and design skills as they create a seaworthy structure out of two sheets of 4' by 8' corrugated cardboard and some duct tape.”
The students of PCES are working hard to win this year’s event. Go Knights!
