Carolina STEM Challenge®: Boats and Buoyancy Kit
Grades 6–12. "Anchors aweigh" as design teams work to build a better boat starting with the classic aluminum foil model. Discover whether shape, size, or material (foil, clay, or wood) is the key to success for supporting maximum load. This simple yet challenging lab activity invokes critical thinking and problem solving while reinforcing engineering, buoyancy, and density principles. Materials support 15 design teams.
