Cardboard boat races
27 Sep 2022
Paddling against the inevitability of the soggy collapse of their creations, students enrolled in Early College Experience courses through the University of Connecticut took to the waters of Eastern Point Beach for cardboard boat races Friday.
A dozen boats from seven high schools converged on the beach following a morning of workshops hosted by UConn Avery Point. Teams competed in three heats with the winners and the next two fastest finishers entering the water for a championship round.
