Science Challenge 1 // Buoyancy

Science Challenge 1 is all about buoyancy – designing something that floats. A crucial design element of a sail boat!

Use the worksheet to design and make a craft that floats on water. Then test how well it floats – its buoyancy – by adding weight to find out the crafts limit. Modify your design to see if you can carry more weight before it starts to sink.

Good luck and don’t forget to share your creation and results with us!
