NEW HAVEN, Ind. (21Alive) -- Physics students from New Haven High School tested their cardboard boat designs Monday during the Anchors Away competition.
Students were asked to construct a cardboard boat large enough to support them and navigate an obstacle course through Jury Pool. The boat can only be made of cardboard and adhesive.
"They learn a little bit about the physical world. Other issues dealt with are buoyancy and stability...those are different issues, so they know very little about physics at this point, and it's an extra challenge that way. But, the water's in the pool!" physics teacher, Matt Derby, said.
This was the 14th year for the Anchors Away competition in New Haven.
