Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2023 Race Report: Soccer Moms



Here's a Sculpture!
< Previous Page Next Page >

Soccer Moms

Nine students in the Kinetic Sculpture Racing class at St. Paul’s School for Girls created Soccer Moms, comemorating the superwomen who form the backbone of extracurricular activities, providing mini-athletes with endless opportunities to learn, play, and slay.

Before the water entry, the pontoons rotated downward to reveal not-quite-rectangular athletic fields that held the sculpture afloat.

The 2 pilots were well out of the water, adhering to the 8% Total Body Wetness Rule:

Pilots are only allowed 8% total area of body/clothes wetness. The point here is to stay out of the Harbor waters. Therefore every effort should be made to keep bodies above the Harbor water line. Wear a good anti-perspirant.

Two wheels up front, three in the back, with moms on board.

St. Paul’s School for Girls has entered:

Through the finish line banner.

The judges awarded Soccer Moms their Judges’ Discretionary Award for continuing the St. Paul’s School tradition of entering the kinetic sculpture race after the School for Boys didn't enter this year.
