We are excited to announce that the inaugural event for the Moat Boat Paddle Battle will happen May 16th and 17th at Maker Faire Bay Area! This is a chance for you to design your own rubber band powered, 3D printed paddle boat and race it against other would-be “masters of the trough”, for a chance to go home with glory AND amazing prizes from SeeMeCNC.
Contestants can compete in 3 levels of competition: Youth Closed 12 and Under, Youth Closed 13-18, and Open Class. The two youth classes will come with some restrictions (see Rules for more details), but the Open class is where the real engineers of all ages have a chance to shine!
If you are not a hardcore designer, don’t worry, we have you covered. The team at Ocean State Maker Mill has created a few sample boat designs to get you started. Download them, print them and join the race – or use them as a starting point for your own design, the choice is yours. You can find links to download them here.
For more details, be sure to check out the race Rules.
