It was a very interesting learning experience and we, the Patrons, (Mr. Boateng and Mrs. Essuman) would like to thank Mr. I. T. Ofei and the SMT for giving us such an opportunity.

We also thank Mr. Christian Schmelz, Mr. Abu Issah, Mr. Agyemang Gyamfi and Mr. Prince Kley for their technical support. We also thank the members of the Science and Environment Club for devoting their afternoons to building the boats.
