Which boat will float? 🚣‍♀️ 💧 🛠


Our aspiring engineers in 2nd and 3rd class designed and made boats! 🛠 The boys planned the design together as seen below. They thought about the shape and decided on one that would float best in water. Once the design was finalised the boat was made using play doh! To make the test fair, all of the groups got the same amount of play doh and had to complete it in 10 minutes. Each group gently placed their boat into the water. We timed each one and discovered that the red team had the best design! It floated for almost 4 minutes ! 🚣‍♀️💧
