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).


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

Weights - pennies and more

Tape and scissors



* 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!
