This past week in the engineering elective, the students worked on using aluminum foil and two straws to design a boat that will hold the most mass. Students were asked to work with a partner to design their boat first on graph paper. Once their design was complete they then used the materials to create their prototype. Students were given three trial to have an aluminum boat that could hold the most mass. This coming week…the students will be work to build newspaper towers. We need as many newspapers as possible…no ads! This is serious stuff!
