Boats

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.

How Does Your Boat Float?

How many pennies can your aluminum foil boat hold before it sinks?

Little Boats

Make your own little boat to test how it floats down a stream, around a lake, or in your bathtub.

Rubber Band Boat

Build and experiment with your own rubber band powered boat.
