MASON, Ohio - Students at Mason High School were given an usual task Tuesday afternoon.
AP physics students had to swim across the high school pool in boats they built themselves out of cardboard and tape. The students worked in teams and raced across the pool. The team with the most creative design and best performing boat won the contest.
