How does it work?

Teams of 4 will be given an equal amount of cardboard, a pair of scissors, and ductape. Each team will have 1 hour to construct their own cardboard canoe using those materials. Once complete, the team will put 2 members in the canoe, and race around the course for 10 minutes total.

So what could we win?

The team with the most laps in 10 minutes (or before the boat sinks) will win the grand prize, of a Google Chromecast. Second place will win a free Outdoor Recreation trip during the academic year for the entire team (each person can choose). A taco bar will be provided during the building phase.

Did you say tacos?
