Students from area elementary, middle and high schools will build and race boats during the OSU-Tulsa Engineering Design Challenge on Thursday, Feb. 25 in the OSU-Tulsa Main Hall Commons.

The event exposes area children to science, technology, engineering and math through hands-on activities. Students work in teams to design and build the fastest motorized watercraft. The project requires teams to work together to solve problems that may occur related to stability, thrust, buoyancy, electronics, propeller design and more.

Timed boat races are conducted in 10-foot lengths of halved PVC pipes filled with water at the end of the event. Awards are given in several categories, including fastest boat, teamwork and best aesthetics. Read more.
