Oscar takes on Mr. Dempsey’s Tinfoil Boat Challenge

May 27, 2020

By Will

Well done to 5th and 6th Class who took on another of Mr. Dempsey’s STEM challenges. This time, using just a sheet of tinfoil the class were tasked with designing a boat which would be buoyant enough to hold coins without sinking. Using what they learned, they designed a second, and hopefully better boat like Oscar did! Check out Oscar’s “before” and “after” results in the videos below. Well done Oscar!
