Carmeron Althoff, left and his twin brother Nathan both juniors at West High school, paddle their cardboard raft across the MSU-B swimming pool Tuesday. The two are in Maureen Ladd's physics class who formed teams to build cardboard and duct tape rafts to race them across the pool. The teams made calculations to build a raft that would hold the weight of two people and stay afloat for the duration of the race. The Althoff brothers did not make it before they fell off their raft into the water.
