On Saturday, December 3, students from all four AISD middle schools and ATEMS participated in the 7th Annual Cardboard Boat Invitational. This year’s competition was hosted at the Phillips Family Center at McMurry University. Student teams showcased their boat building skills in the opening ceremony parade and competed in a variety of categories related to boat speed, distance traveled, construction creativity, and buoyancy time.

Congratulations to Mann and Clack middle schools for winning the overall middle school competition, and to the “Big 12” and “PAC 12” teams for tying for first place in the high school competition. Check out the gallery of photos taken by AISD photography students on this page to see the hard work and ingenuity of our students and their team coaches!
