This year's Eighth Grade Boat Float was spectacular! This semester-long integrated art/science project tasked students with designing scale models of their boats in art class and then building full-size boats in science class. During the boat race across the pool, the students saw firsthand the impact of experimental design, density and buoyancy.
The students’ boat designs were so successful that we had to have two championship heats instead of only one! After weeks of intense design, engineering and building, the winners of the 2019 Boat Float are Lacie Frech ’23, Mikayla Fannin ’23 and Grace MacKinlay ’23. We are so proud of all of the eighth graders and applaud their efforts on this fun project.
