ALNS are entering teams for the BAE Engineering challenge – do you have what it takes to build an unsinkable boat?
ALNS have entered this competition for the last 3 years and previously have won the award for ‘Best Design’.
We are currently working with 2 apprentices from BAE who are running sessions after school on Wednesdays in Tech 1 to prepare students with all the information they need to build a successful ship.
Boat building will commence after half term and the final competition will be held on Thursday 9th July 2015 at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, where our team’s boats will be put to the test with challenges such as:
• How much cargo can your boat transport?
• Can your boat sail in a straight line?
• How quick is your boat?
• Can you boat survive with a hole in it?
Wish our teams luck and keep your eye out for the result in the next issue of Latitude!
