Home Experiment: Build a Raft
Last week, we've posted a home experiment for building a Baking Soda Rocket which got a very positive feedback from our readers, so we've decided to post a new home experiment this week - Building a small scale raft.
Materials you'll need
Small figures (e.g Lego figure)
Out of the materials you've collected, try to build a raft you believe would float.
Put the raft you've build on the water tray.
Add figures on top of your raft - how many of them can you put before the raft sinks?
Extra challenge - Change the raft you've built to allow more figures on it before it sinks.
This home experiment is also great as a small competition between your kids - enjoy!
