Sink or swim! Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta
Last Friday, Oct. 9 was the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta. The Regatta is an annual event held by the University’s School of Engineering & Computer Science.
In the weeks leading up to the event, freshman engineering students work in pairs to build a boat out of cardboard and tape. They must then paddle the boat to one end of the Chris Kjeldsen Pool and back without sinking. The Regatta is meant to show the ingenuity and creativity engineering students need to succeed in their careers, as well as just being a fun graded activity.
