Packaging students paddle to first place


Packaging Jamboree Virginia Tech’s team paddled to first place in the Packaging Jamboree’s Corrugated Regatta.

May 15, 2015 – Thirteen packaging students traveled to the 30th annual Packaging Jamboree, held this year at Clemson University, where they attended networking events, presentations, and technical sessions with students from other universities as well as industry professionals. Virginia Tech came away with first place in the Corrugated Regatta, in which student teams were given unlimited amounts of corrugated board, one roll of duct tape, and an hour to construct a boat. The craft had to hold one passenger, who attempted to paddle 25 yards in an indoor swimming pool. Of the first three boats to race, only one successfully made it to the other side. When the Virginia Tech boat hit the water in the second heat, it was obvious they were paddling to first place. Congratulations!
