LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The superintendent of JCPS put cardboard and duct tape to the test on Tuesday. Donna Hargens took part in Jeffersontown High School's annual Cardboard Boat Regatta, with her racing the school's principal.
25 engineering students research, design, and build the boats made of only cardboard and duct tape. The project is not just fun -- it lets students test their math and science skills.
Tech Coordinator Chuck Pierce explains, "They're learning teamworking skills because they have to agree on what they're doing and they're learning how to learn math skills designing it."
Students have to row their boat two lengths of the pool for a grade.
