The Sailor’s Life for me!

Yesterday we did a STEM activity which involved designing a boat out of tin foil which could hold as many unifix blocks as possible! We all got given the same sized piece of foil and worked in pairs to design and create the perfect boat. Some of us had issues and ended up getting holes in our boat during the creation stage, however overall we created some interesting and effective boat designs! There were two stand out boats. The first held 125 unifix blocks and the winning design held 220 unifix blocks before it sunk! The winning boat is pictured below. We loved this activity!
