Paper Boat 30 Minutes Team Challenge

Today, the students worked in collaborative teams. Their goal was to design, make and test a paper boat.  They were given a piece of A4 paper, a pair of scissors and a glue stick.  They worked together on designing a paper boat that could be propelled by the force of a breath.  After drawing their boats, they had 30 minutes to make them. We tested the boat in a water trough.  Findings: we wish we had a much bigger trough!

  1. Kia ora Room 18. Awesome job with your boats. So what did you find made a good design for a boat? And I wonder if the same ideas work for real sail boats?
