 +==== 2020 ====
 +<​sarcasm>​This year's raft race was done fully online because of covid reasons.
 +Each team 3D scanned and measured the physics properties of the materials they would have used in building their raft. The materials were assembled into a raft inside of CAD software before being simulated inside of a Computational Fluid Dynamics/​Multiphysics program.</​sarcasm>​
