Cardboard Boat Competition

Cardboard Boat

For the first time in IUPUI history, our students will compete against each other in a Cardboard Boat Competition. Last year, two students from Purdue House in the Riverwalk Apartments proved that it can be done. The event will take place between the preliminary and finals heats at the IUPUI Regatta. A maximum of 10 teams will be allowed to compete this year. Be sure to register your team, read the rules packet and build your boat!
