John Tyler High School Students Put Their Physics Skills To The Test

With a little help from the UT Tyler Engineering department, advanced-placement students took to the water with cardboard boats.

Some of the boats held up more than others, but the experience will last a lifetime.

"I'm trying to go into architecture," said Susano Valdez, a senior at John Tyler.  "Building and designing is right up my alley."

Some students also built and tested a boat made of concrete.
