Engineering Club

Seventh and eighth grade students are welcome to participate in Engineering Club.

This club meets once a week after school during the second semester.

Students in engineering club will design and build a boat to race in this year's Solar Regatta at Lake Riley in Eden Prairie on a Saturday in May to be announced.  The Solar Regatta is a competition open to students in grades 6-12.

The Solar Regatta is sponsored by the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society.  Boats in the student competition are limited to powering their boats using an 85 watt solar panel.  The boat we build will be piloted by students through a series of races including a slalom race, a short distance speed race, and a one-hour endurance race.

We had such a great time with this project last year that we can't wait to do it again!
