Cardboard Boat Challenge

For the 18th year, the Technology Education Department at East Lyme High School hosted a cardboard boat challenge. Students from Lew Tucker's engineering and pre-engineering classes, who built boats as part of their course, were joined by fellow East Lyme High School students and staff as well as guests from Plainfield High School, Old Saybrook High School and Bacon Academy. Race rules required boats to be constructed of cardboard and tape and to complete one lap of the pool.
