The Recycle Regatta is a fun, hands-on competition that students can participate in. K-12 students are invited to engineer small-scale, unmanned, model sailboats only out of repurposed materials. They will then test it for buoyancy and race their boat to victory! If your boat isn't the fastest ship in the sea, that's okay! Prizes will be awarded for creativity, your engineering method, and other seaworthy categories. Prizes will be awarded to our winners!
Categories for entry include:
SAILFISH FLEET: They are small scale designs that can operate on their own, without a human captain, using wind. Your natural power source will come from the wind or, from your own lungs using a straw!
SQUID FLEET: They are small scale designs that can operate on their own, without a human captain, using propulsion. We challenge you to move your boat using propulsion from rubber bands!
