Learning to Build
Students learn how to build boats through a series of construction challenges.
Sink or Float?
Students learned first hand what is required of a seaworthy craft by getting out on the water themselves.
Based on the mass of their team, students calculate the minimum required volume of their boat, then start building!
Students, teachers, parents and community members gathered at Spanish Landing Park to watch the 4th Graders launch their boats in the San Diego Harbor.
