The 2015-2016 academic year is off to a strong start. On September 23, 2015, the ECE Marine Sciences and Maritime Studies students participated in the 5th annual UConn Avery Point Cardboard Boat Race. The event is always a fun and exciting time filled with lots of laughs. Participating in this year ’s event were seven partner high schools: Waterford High School, Marine Science Magnet High School, Science and Technology Magnet High School of Southeastern Connecticut, Manchester High School, South Windsor High School, University High School and Stonington High School. The team from Marine Science Magnet High School in Groton won first place in the UConn ECE Division, however they were defeated by the UConn student entry in the championship race.
