****Event cancelled due to lack of entries****

Building on our previously successful Summer Social events, 2017 sees us try something a bit different with the help of some cardboard and tape. Do you have what it takes to design, build and race a 2 person boat made primarily from corrugated cardboard? 

Join us for an action packed day of activities both on and off the water at our summer engineering spectacular. Prove your engineering ability in our Cardboard Boat Building Competition or try your hand at one of the many watersports on offer such as sailing or windsurfing. For those without any sea legs, test your racing skills in our racecar simulator, attempt to build a counterbalanced model crane or marvel at the abilities of 3D printing. We are sure to have something to keep every member of the family entertained!

Everyone welcome!

Saturday 05 August 2017, 10am Start

Welton Waters Adventure Centre
