Junior Mechanical Engineering: Paddle Boat Badge 2/10/21

Wed Feb 10, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Grade 4-5

People have been traveling by water for thousands of years. At first, boats, such as canoes, were powered by people. Later, boats were built to use other forms of energy. Girls will explore how paddle boats work and use the Design Thinking Process to engineer their own paddle boats out of a plastic bottle. They will put their paddle boats to the test while understanding buoyancy, potential energy, and kinetic energy.

Badge Information: In this virtual program girls will earn Junior Mechanical Engineering Badge 1: Paddle Boat Design Challenge. Badge included and will be shipped to you.
