“Applied Design, Skills and Technology is a big part of our curriculum here in School District 60. We want to give students the opportunity to be able to design and build. The great thing about this curriculum is it allows students to be able to demonstrate with both their head and their hands.”

Each team’s boat was also judged on the planning and design, quality of construction, visual appeal, teamwork and team spirit, knowledge of essential skills, safety and cleanliness.

Each speed and weight challenge was judged by School District 60 staff.
