The 5th annual Cardboard Boat Regatta took place on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. Duct tape for the projects was generously donated by The Jackson Township Police Department for the 2nd year in a row.
During the last two weeks of the school year students use all of their cooperative teamwork skills to work as a class to decide on a theme, create costumes, design and build a 3D printed scale model, create plans and construct a cardboard boat using only cardboard and duct tape. The boat must hold two classmates and be able to sail from one end of the Farmersville Pool to the other. This year the themes included WWE, Candyland, Titanic, Lilo & Stitch, Bubba Gump's Shrimp Boat, and Jaws. First place this year was my second period advanced class in their all girl built boat Candyland. Second place was my sixth period with Jaws. Third place was my fourth period with The Titanic!
