Team Gundlach at the 2010 'cardboard regatta'

The traditional end of Industrial Design’s sophomore studio course is the Dean’s Cup Design Challenge, which pits teams from Tom Williamson’s class against Joel Gundlach’s class to build three boats in three hours out of cardboard, duct tape, PVCĀ pipe and plastic sheeting. Students have one week to develop conceptual ideas utilizing sketching and scale models before competing on the water in three timed events featuring one-, two- and three-person boats. Race day efforts are dedicated to constructing, testing and competing for the Cardboard Regatta trophy, which was claimed by Team Gundlach in the sixth annual event on May 8.
