Cannon STEM Book of the Month

Submarine Design Challenge
Design a submarine that can be submerged underwater for 3 full minutes and is able to keep a cotton ball dry.
-Using ANY recycled materials you would like, design a submarine that is able to be submerged underwater for 3 full minutes.
-Recycled materials used, must be different from their original form. (For example: any parts of a water bottle may be used, but not a water bottle in it's original form.)
-Designs may be self-submerging, or submerged with assistance by the designer.
-Designs must be no larger than a shoebox in size.
-Each designer will be given one cotton ball that will need to be placed in the submarine on our launch day and that cotton ball must be kept dry once it has been submerged underwater for 3 full minutes.
Think about it....
What materials will work best underwater? What materials will not dissolve when wet?
All designs due by Friday, May 20th! If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Berumen!
