The program teaches students team work, problem solving, communication, and creativity—skills that are essential for success in the trades. The experience teaches students that team work, problem solving, communication and creativity are skill sets required for success in the trades.
Teams of four students got two hours to build a boat using cardboard, duct tape, contact cement, string, and paper clips. In the afternoon, the competitors put their design to the test in the swimming pool in both a race and weight challenge.
