Hamilton Elementary Skimmer Races

For more than 10 years, Hamilton Elementary 4th graders have partnered with Yanfeng Automotive in Holland for a powerful engineering program called AWIM (A World in Motion).

Students work on engineering teams with a specific job that is crucial for the team's overall success, according to 4th Grade Teacher Andy Reinstra. They must build a skimmer (paper boat) that can sail down the river (table) at least 100 cm.

At the end of December, they tested, presented, and finally held a wild, fun, and crazy race day. Enjoy this high energy and very loud video!
