The 5th Annual Engineering Challenge was held February 23rd at the Sequim Boys & Girls Club.
The 2013 contest was a Golf Ball Barge Building Competition, with contestants from Greywolf and Helen Haller Elementary Schools, Sequim Middle School, and Sequim High School competing in two divisions. Contestants were required to design and build a barge powered by deformed elastic material to carry the greatest possible number of golf balls over a 14.5 foot water course. Barges could not exceed 18” in length and 12” in width and they had to complete the course. The lightest weight boat carrying the most golf balls won! The first, second and third place winners in each division won scholarship prizes in the amount of $1,000, $750, and $500, respectively.
