Addison Trail, Willowbrook students study physics aboard cardboard boats

Addison Trail and Willowbrook high school physics students participated in a Cardboard Regatta on May 18.

More than 100 students from the two schools competed in the boat race at the Addison Park District Family Aquatic Center. The students are in Advanced Placement/college-level Physics I and AP Physics 2.

Participants built boats out of cardboard and tape, and they raced 50 yards from one end of the pool to the other.

The goal was to apply physics knowledge ranging from Newton and gravity to fluid dynamics.
