STEM Challenge: How many marbles can your boat hold?

This week we had great fun designing boats and testing them to see how many marbles they could hold. We predicted what could happen to our boats when we put in the marbles, will they float or sink? Then we planned the design with our partner and got to work testing out our ideas!

We really enjoyed this experiment and next we will be looking at the effects of water on different materials!
