Lake provides ultimate physics test for THHS class
As the leaves start to fall each autumn, students at Two Harbors test their knowledge against the chilly waters of Lake Superior.
Since school started in September, students worked in pairs to build cardboard boats in Penny Juenemann's physics class. On Friday, Oct. 12, students brought their creations to Burlington Bay for the annual Two Harbors High School Boat Races.
Students used glue, tape and plenty of paint to decorate their watercraft. The class voted Rachel Lambert and Kristin Haveri's "Super Mario Kart"-themed creation the "best-looking boat."
The real test, however, was the speed with which students could paddle their watercraft 50 meters across Burlington Bay. Nora Hubbard and Elisa Galyen's canoe-style boat made the trip in the fastest time and Audrey Hanson and Nathan Campbell's boat finished second.
