Lompoc residents try "Walking-on-Water"

Students of all ages were invited to put on their engineering caps at the Lompoc Aquatic Center Saturday as part of the first Walking-on-Water competition.

The Lompoc Parks, Recreation & Urban Forestry Department sponsored the event as a way to promote ingenuity and creativity among city residents.

Competitors were challenged to create self-propelled buoyancy shoes and stay afloat. They could use any type of materials, but recyclable materials were encouraged. Each team took part in a series of 25-yard races within their division, with the fastest crossing times determining the winners.

To be fair, the competition was divided into pre-high school, high school and college students, with an additional category for community participants.
