Sailboat Challenge

Banner 1366x500The Challenge

Organise a sailboat race for children in elementary school! This so that these kids can learn more about the physics of sailing. How can boats sail against the wind?

The Project

Together with JETNET we organised a challenge for kids to build their own sailboat. From two PET bottles they have to make their own design. The designs were judged by members of the Bright Society in different categories.

  • Colorfullness
  • Smart Design
  • Speed

Next to that the kids got lessons in the physics on sailing. All this was organised for the Dutch Technology Week 2016 at the High Tech Campus

The Result

It was a great morning with a lot of enthusiasm from the kids! Check out this video and have a look!
