Boat Design Competition

3rd & 4th September

Boat Design Competition Cayman

Design Your Own Boat

What makes for a good tanker, sailboat or even battleship? To find out, we would like to invite creative students to join us for our two day boat design competition, where our experts will teach you how to design and construct your own paper boat that we will then put through a number of exciting challenges!
  • Speed – who can design and build the fastest boat and compete in a series or races
  • Cargo – we will give you 8kg of cargo for you to safely deliver from port to port
  • Seaworthiness – with simulated waves, how well will your boat survive a perilous crossing
  • Survivability – oh no there’s a hole in your boat! The winner is the one who can stay afloat the longest!
  • Cost – when you build your boat you will be given materials – each material carries a cost, who can make the most cost efficient design?

The first day of this workshop we will build our model boats using various craft materials in a classroom setting. The second day is competition day with a prize up for grabs for the overall winner! Lunch and snacks will be provided on both days.
