Overview

Construct-A-Boat by William Baroway

Construct-a-Boat harbors the goal of deepening students' knowledge of basic principles of mass, buoyancy, friction, and acceleration. By working with a simple model powered by a battery-driven fan, students get a feel for the forces involved in moving a boat through water. In order to improve performance, students use their understanding of physics to analyze parameters and design a faster boat. This immersion in learning-by-doing translates abstract concepts into tangible objectives and teaches students seaworthy lessons in modeling and design.
