Rafts, Boats, Ships OH My!
In this lesson you will design a raft and a boat that can be easily 3D printed using Tinkercad. Both of these models have a flat bottom design which helps displace water to make them float. The more water the boat can displace, the more it can float or the more buoyant it is. Additionally, there is a investigation that you can do with the help of your teacher.
