THE rubber duckie team at isr
Another amazing, action-packed week of submarine racing is over. The KIDS sub, Rubber Duckie, won the top speed category for Independent entries. Woot woot!
Each person on the team contributed in so many ways. Parents ferried youth and supplies and coordinated food. Youth staffed our welcome table, emergency wagon, tank refill cart, etc. Parents and youth worked together as our dive team. Our adventurous pilots Abby, Sean and Teddy each had a couple of turns piloting the sub. Rubber Duckie was showing "war wounds" from hitting the sides of the model basin several times.
We learned much about communication, working as a team, sticking to the mission, design and manufacturing, project management and more. The whole project was a great learning experience, made better by the wonderful people who are part of Kids Into Discovering Science.
