Notre Dame Takes Home the Gold!!

posted Jan 16, 2017, 12:26 PM by Lindsay O'Hare

A talented team of students from Notre Dame High School took home first prize in the Ottawa region at Skills Ontario's annual Cardboard Boat Race in December. The event is an opportunity for students to use teamwork, creativity, and problem solving in a fun and competitive environment. In teams of four, students have two hours to build the fastest and strongest boat they can, using a limited amount of cardboard and duct tape. Their boats are then tested to see how fast they complete a race, and how much weight they can hold.
