Congratulations to Heidi Haire’s 3D Foundations class took home the People’s Choice Award and our four teams finished in the top five places this last Saturday at the Second Annual Marine Lab Regatta.

In constructing their boats entirely from found and recyclable discarded materials, the students were asked to consider the following:

  • What others uses are possible for materials that are routinely discarded?
  • Is it possible to utilize detritus to create original/unexpected aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound forms?
  • How might objects we often overlook be seen in a fundamentally/functionally different manner?

Wake-Watchers
Overall, the weather was perfect, the water was nice, and the students achieved their goals.
