In the end, Syck felt the activity was a success.
"Everything did go as planned. Students designed and constructed their boats and I feel the tests went better than expected," he said. "The only oversight we had was the time allotted for testing. We thought it would take an hour or two to test each boat in both categories. In actuality, the testing was done in about 45 minutes."
But that was okay for the students, who spent the rest of the time enjoying the pool.
"All the students had a blast and I actually had more than one student come up and tell me how much fun they had," said Syck. "It's nice to see an idea like this come to fruition and the students learn so much while having fun."
