Students in Hubbard had the opportunity to test the buoyancy of homemade boats at the Hubbard Community Pool Friday afternoon.

Physics classes at Hubbard High School hosted their own "Eagle Regatta" at the community pool featuring student-built boats made entirely out of cardboard and duct tape.

Students applied and tested their understanding of buoyancy and Archimedes' Principle as they floated in their handmade creations.

This project has been ongoing since winter break when students have been dedicating their Fridays to constructing their boats courtesy of a donation from Gasser Chair and P&L Meatcrafts with Gasser Chair donating the cardboard and P&L donating the duct tape.

According to a press release, teacher, Irene Pizanias said the project has been a regular part of physics class, but this year, a student suggested constructing large boats after seeing a similar experiment done on a YouTube video.
