W5 Cardboard Regatta Competition

Throughout the 2022/23 academic year, Year 10 and 11 students from six participating schools took part in theory and practical workshops to develop their engineering knowledge.

For the final event, students applied the knowledge they gained throughout the programme to construct a cardboard boat which they displayed at the Showcase event in W5 LIFE.

On Thursday 22nd June 2023, the six teams, alongside their paired industry expert, travelled to W5 LIFE to participate in the programme's Showcase event.

The teams presented their innovative cardboard boat designs and communicated their engineering expertise to the judges. 

The team from Fort Hill Integrated College performed fantastically, winning two trophies.  One for ‘Best Theme’ and one for winning the ‘Cardboard Regatta Race’.  Many thanks must go to the team of Engineers from Energia that supported the pupils over the year.
