MIAMI (AP) — Students from Florida International University have been walking on water for a class assignment.
To do it, they wear water shoes that they created.
The students had to make it to the other side of a 175-foot lake on campus Thursday while wearing the aquatic shoes in order to earn an "A'' on the assignment. Alex Quinones was the first to do so in just over a minute, earning himself $500 and major bragging rights.
A total of 79 students competed in the race.
Architecture professor Jaime Canaves says the annual race is a lesson in in life as well as architecture. He says he wants to show his students that as long as they research and test their work, anything is possible — even "walking on water."
