Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2012 Race Report: The Polysaccharides



Here's a Sculpture!
< Previous Page Next Page >

The Polysaccharides

The Baltimore Polytechnic Institute high school created The Polysaccharides, demonstrating increased skill from 2011’s The PolyGnomials.

The sculpture was all about sugar. (While glucose is technically a disaccharide, there is no Ditechnic Institute to push that point. A sculpture about starches would have been much less colorful). The team’s t-shirts featured fragments of candy logos, and the sculpture is comprised of candy elements including the candy cane corner posts, and gumballs. They won Best Costumes.

The piñata atop the sculpture was impacted several times by tree limbs, causing the donkey to look skyward at various points.

On the water, a pilot told a judge they were doing “way better” than they expected.
