Skateboard

By: Blanca Parada

The first skateboard was invented in 1940, with a wooden box and wheels from roller skates. Eventually, the box became a board. Skateboarding itself initially started in California, when surfers wanted to surf without waves. This is called “sidewalk surfing”, and it has turned out to be an amazing sport that has now made it to the Olympics.

This is related to engineering because a skateboard is a form of transportation and was engineered to preform as one.
