Engineering Problems Students Compete in Cardboard Regatta
Last week, nine teams from the PVHS Engineering Problems class competed in the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta!
 
To prepare for this competition, students had to research, design, prototype, and build a boat completely out of cardboard that would hold one or two people. During the contest, teams had to power the boat a distance of 600 yards in the Bettendorf Lagoon, with the fastest boat winning!
 
Two of the nine competing PV teams placed within the top five: Noah Vance and Chris Mahoney with their boat Noah’s Ark coming in second place, and Jacob Bandy and Wishwa Subramanian placing fifth. PV also placed second in the overall school division!
 
There are three competitions that the engineering focused classes compete in over the course of the semester – The Cardboard Boat Regatta, The Bridge Building Event, and The Trebuchet Egg Throwing Contest. All three contests are put on by the Quad Cities Engineering and Science Council.
 
Great job PV students for using your STEM skills to succeed in this competition!
