Emily Cheung boldly challenged the icy cold waters of Indian Lake earlier this week, to test the sea worthiness of her newly constructed boat. Donning a wet suit and with the assistance of STEAM classmates and teacher, Brian Phillips, Em carefully stepped aboard her delicate craft for its first “shake down” cruise. With little fanfare and some anxiety but high hopes, Em Cheung launched the boat she named the Silver Dash.
The newly built craft made of PVC pipe and duct tape leaked some, but nevertheless it stayed buoyant and strong enough to take her teacher on as a passenger. This was a crucial test and helped Emily discover flaws and problems so that she can make alterations and adjustments to her intrepid little boat. She spent many hours steaming and bending pvc pipe and cutting and smoothing over many rolls of duct tape. Emily deemed her first test a success and she learned many things that will improve her boat.
