    I used to do the same with my colleague at a local school were we would teach some school kids around 10years old for their science projects the basics of hull design and then let them make up their own minds which way they want to go and offer advice. At the end of the year there was a contest for the fastest, slowest, most silly and entertaining. Was a real hoot.
