Design a working motorboat with this activity. Find your hull in the recycling bin (milk jug, foam tray, and so on). Add the motor, propeller, and other components. Set it in the water and watch it go. Learn through experimentation and tinkering. Evolve your boat through the engineering design process.
This activity features TeacherGeek Build-Your-Own Propellers, enabling you to create unique propellers by changing blade shape, angle, and number.
What else will you need for this activity?
- Recycled material for the hull (recycling bin stuff), duct tape, scissors, AA batteries
- TeacherGeek Tool Set – This can be reused and shared by students.
