Float the Boat

Past Event: 31 March 2012 to 15 April 2012

A tall ship on the ocean

Discover density and buoyancy in a fun 30-minute workshop.

Learn why heavy metal ships don’t sink to the bottom of the ocean, how submarines can rise to the surface, and why oil floats on top of water. Make a ship in a bottle to take home, fashion your own craft out of plasticine and see how much weight it can hold before it sinks!

These workshops are strictly for ages 6 - 12 years.
