Tin Foil Boat Challenge
By: Andrea Martinez, Karen Galvan, Gabriella Cortez
Challenge: Create a boat made from a .3m x .5m piece of alluminum foil that can hold the most marble. The boat must float unassited in the water carrying/holding the marbles.
* 1 piece of standard aluminum foil measuring .3m x .5m (a new piece may be used each time)
* container to hold water
* Glass Marbles ( regular size)
Students will also need to prepare a short presentation about their project.
My prediction was that using water to better help our boat float, we could hold minimum 50 marbles. Another inference was that the thicker, the more marbles our boat would be able to hold.
We did some reasearch by looking at previous Tin Foil Boat expirements and seeing what worked best for them.
