Clay Boat Activity

SWE-RVA is pleased to share an engineering design activity that can be adapted to students of all ages. With the What Floats Your Boat activity, students are marine engineers and are challenged to explore engineering boat designs that will hold as much weight as possible without sinking.

Below are two documents to accompany the activity. The Lesson Plan document contains information to assist the activity facilitator including the materials required. The Worksheet document is a handout to guide the students through the activity.
