Float Your Boat Challenge

&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; [BCITSA YouTube Chanel] Recently, the BCIT Student Association (BCITSA) hosted a 2-day 'Float Your Boat' competition for the Marine Engineering Students at the Marine Campus in North Vancouver. Contestants were supplied with ‘surprise’ materials to construct their vessels with; materials included plastic garbage bags, popsicle sticks, bamboo skewers, aluminum foil, string, plastic party cups and tape. Teams of 2-3 were given an hour to become acquainted with the surprise materials, then design and construct a sea-worthy vessel. Boats were then raced in heats on the indoor pool, using human-powered fans for wind, to determine who had the fastest time. Prizes were awarded for: Fastest Boat, Most Creative Team and Best Overall Design, all donated by local businesses. I attended just to check out the scene, but the event was also covered by local news media and has since been broadcast on stations in Metro Vancouver, as well as printed publications. Pretty awesome for a low-budget student association! And there's more, the BCITSA has a history of hosting awesome events for students, such as: 3rd Annual Flying Extravaganza, where students at the Aerospace Campus in Richmond, BC "construct planes from everyday office supplies, with the winners chosen based on the distance they can safely land their lego pilots. Additional prizes go to those with best design and best crash." CTV News coverage (youtube video) Engineering Week, hosted at the BCIT Main Campus in Burnaby, BC, where electronic, mechanical and civil engineers compete in tower building, catapult destruction and racing CO2 powered cars, all made from everyday office supplies. As well as the competition Engineering Students brought along projects they have been working on to share with their fellow students, there was even a real live Angry Birds game being played.
