    The 16th Annual Physics Cardboard Boat Regatta sponsored by Tavens Packaging and Display Solutions is scheduled for Tuesday March 6th from 3:15pm until 4:00pm.  Over 150 physics students have been constructing boats out of cardboard and packing tape that can hold 2 students and be able to float across the pool without sinking.  Last year’s regatta was hysterical!  We have over 40 cardboard boats this year.  The cost of admission is only $1.00 for staff and students. Presale tickets are available in the bookroom or you can get them at the door, but get your quickly as last year’s regatta was a sellout.
