6.22.23 – Engineering Explorations

Our engineers have worked hard the last two days to create a boat that floats and holds weight with a working propeller. The next step was to design an ideal hull for their boats. First, our campers learned about the different hull types and the situations they are best used for. After researching the types and identifying points of failure in each one, our campers returned to the drawing board and revamped their boats. The campers got to choose whether to create a hull that focused on speed, holding weight, or a combination of both!
