On May 22 the MMCRU physics class (Robert Russel, Daymion George and Lucas Sanchez) competed in a Milk Jug Boat Race at ValleyFair Amusement Park. This was the culmination of a semester long project of gathering milk jugs, designing, planning, and finally building with the help of Mr. Hansen. The design changed a few times throughout the semester, but through lots of brainstorming and problem solving they came up with a great idea. The boys tested their boat at the CRMC pool before the competition to see if the “MMCRU Milk-Gallion” was seaworthy. At ValleyFair they needed to paddle the boat across the wave pool and back again. They got second place.
