• Boats and Boyancy

    This week on Science Friday, we asked the question,
    "why do boats, like the Mayflower or canoes, float?"
    Our hypothesis was that shape had something to do with it.
    We experiemented with various shapes to see which one floateded better.
    Then, we put "people" in our boats to see how many would fit before it sank!
