► DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY
Some photos and videos from yesterday's work...
We investigated boats yesterday and you found that they can hold quite a lot of cargo before they capsize. Sailors know this and that is why ships have a plimsoll line on the side to ensure that they are not allowed to sink to deep under the weight inside or they become unstable. But why can massive ships float....they are made of metal.....and are heavy....watch the video below....
Build and float a metal boat - test it - what weight can it hold?
You will need:
- tin foil
- some coins
- a small ball that floats (tennis ball size)
- a bowl, sink or bath of water deep enough to float a loaded boat
What to do:
The tin foil is your metal material. You are to use no other materials.
Can you use tin foil to make a boat that floats?
You can fold it, bend it, twist it. You can make it any shape.
Test, Re-design, Test:
How will you know if your boat is successful?
Set yourself a challenge.
Can you load it with coins or something else (lego people, toy animals, marbles)
How will it cope with waves? Try dropping something like a ball into the water next to it.... can it survive the waves? try dropping the ball from different heights.
Share videos or pictures of your super boat.
