9th Grade Science Project

Image result for tinfoil and bottle boat

The 9th grade science class is working on an interesting project. As an experiment, groups will plan out a small boat to build and float. The class studied force, like how certain things can sit on top of the water and be held up. The purpose of the project is to learn more about how this works. The students will design the boats, build them, then test their ability to float by setting them on the water with the weight of fifty pennies. There are lots of different ideas between groups, like using tinfoil, plastic bottles, or PVC pipe. Mrs. Sampson, the teacher over their science class, came up with this idea and will be supplying them with any materials they need for building. 9th grade will be working on these boats for the next week or so, and everyone is already working hard on the experiment.
