Splash your way into STEM!

Once again, the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance will host the Cardboard Duct Tape and Boat Regatta! Join us at Miller Swim School on March 29, 2019 for a chance to race into STEM! Elementary, middle, and high school students will build a boat using only cardboard and duct tape. The boat must be capable of holding at least one person (the captain), who will pilot their boat across the length of the pool. Boats will be judged in 4 categories: Speed, Aesthetics, Historical Merit, and Technical construction. Awards will be given at the elementary, middle and high school level.

  • Students prepare to enter their boats in the 2017 Cardboard and Duct Tape Boat Regatta
  • Students pose with their replica of the U.S.S. Tulsa in the 2017 Cardboard and Duct Tape Boat Regatta
  • Student in costume paddles her boat in the 2017 Cardboard and Duct Tape Boat Regatta
