Challenge #8 Floating Pennies!

Hello all and welcome to challenge #8! Video below and Liz's very funny attempt at the bottom!


Your challenge is to use materials from around your house to float weight (pennies and other HEAVY items).

Supplies:

Tinfoil, wax paper, straws, popsicle sticks, dixie/plastic cups, parchment paper

Weights - pennies and more

Tape and scissors

Water


Extensions:

* Float something very heavy - a brick? A carton of broth?

* use only one material

* Reverse engineer - design a boat to sink (on purpose!)

Sorry we missed you!

Were you looking for Monday's engineering challenge? Our apologies - we had a family distraction.... everything's fine, no one's sick, but we didn't have the time to blog. We'll be back tomorrow!
