5th Graders STEM project

5th Grade started their Force and Motion unit with a STEM activity. Groups had to design a boat out of one piece of aluminum foil (engineering) which could withstand the force of a load of glass coins (science). They also had to compute the area of the bottom of the boat (math), and in our discussion they will research pictures of different boat designs (technology) to decide why certain boats could hold a larger load.
