Week 3 - Cardboard Boat Building

This week we were able to try out the engineering-redesign process for ourselves. We participated in cardboard boat races, which are something historically done at CMU during Homecoming festivities by freshmen engineering students. We were given 7 items ( ducktape and cardboard, in any ratio we choose ), and two hours to build boats that had to float about 100ft across a pond. The teams were:
Steve, Levi, and Jeff
Janet, Shawn, and Matt
Aaron, Lisa, and Andy
Sandy, Michelle, and Kasey
Ze and Jenny

Sandy, Michelle, and Kasey were successful, as well as Janet, Shawn, and Matt in reaching the other side of the pond. Here are some photos and videos from our day of fun!
