Description

Indiana Academy Youth Enrichment Program - The Science of Boats: Sink or Float?

Students in grades 6th-9th are invited to join us on Saturday, February 29 from 9:000 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

In this exciting, hands-on program students will learn about Archimedes’ principle and use it to make predictions on whether selected objects will float or sink. Students will build their own boats out of selected materials, with the challenge to build a boat that can hold as much weight as possible without sinking. Along the way students will investigate different boat designs, discussing the pros and cons to assist in designing their own boats.

This youth enrichment program is FREE, but you must register to attend.

Register at least one week prior to the program to receive a free Indiana Academy canvas bag! Registration closes two days prior to the program.
