Float your Boat! - July 10 at 11:00amPicture2

Come join  us for a STEM program that includes stories, experiments, and some friendly competition. How does a cruise ship, made of tons of steel, stay afloat on the water? During this program, participants make boats out of aluminum foil, learn how gravity and buoyancy affect boats, and apply what they have learned about these forces to come up with a foil boat design that will hold the most pennies.

This program is intended for children in grades 1-5.
