Get wet as you build, test, and modify a variety of boats! Each activity is an engineering challenge as you make boats from everything from ice to bark, foil to bottles. You’ll have a chance to measure how much weight a boat can hold, how far they can float, and how fast your paddle boat can propel itself.
