Sink or Swim - Who Will Win?

Format: In Person, Virtual | Grade: Lower Elementary (K-3)

Students test whether different objects sink or float and consider the relationship to material properties. Students get excited as items sink or float unexpectedly! They then engage in an engineering challenge to build a boat that will float and hold as many marbles as possible!
