Muscatine students get wet in boat-building effort

  • Photo

MUSCATINE (AP) — Some Muscatine High School students got a lesson in boat-building and swimming.

The Muscatine Journal reports the students took part in a physics project organized by teacher Pam Joslyn.

She split students into groups of three and four and directed them to build boats using corrugated fiberboard, glue, tape and sometimes PVC pipe.

On Wednesday, the students attempted to paddle their boats across an algae-covered pond behind the school.

Some students managed to navigate across the pond and back without getting wet.

But not everyone.

Students Eric Klein and Blaine Bastin weren’t surprised their 12-foot boat sank. Klein noted, they had named it “Titanic II.”
