Faculty of Education PED3152B Inquiry Math and Science class will be participating in a modified version of the Skills Canada - Ontario CARDBOARD BOAT RACES this term. Check out skillsontario.com for further 'hands in minds on' learning opportunities. 

On Tuesday Nov 24th, students will be walking these built boats over to the Montpetit university pool, changing into pool attire and sporting life jackets - ready to test the engineering STEM creations in the water. The first test will be a race across the pool and the second test will be a live load. A tabulation of both these scores will deliver a winning team. But win or sink all student teacher participants will have taken part in a highly engaging STEM experience.
