Small Fan Boat

Introduction: Small Fan Boat

This is the boat I am going to show you how to make. It has a very basic circuit with a fan, a switch and some foam for floating.

Step 1: Collect the Materials

For this project you will need:

  • a battery pack
  • a switch(I have this already in the battery pack)
  • some glue
  • 13 Popsicle sticks
  • a small piece of foam

Step 2: Make the Platform and Floater

Glue 11 of the sticks to the the other two like so. Cut the foam into a piece so it will fit in the platform between the outer sticks. Glue the the floater to the platform, make sure that the platform is at the very back of the floater or the fan won't work.

Step 3: Add the Cicut.

Attach the battery pack to the front of the platform and attach the switch (again I don't need this step because of my battery pack) near the battery pack. Then glue the fan on the back and connect the wires. I just used duct tape to connect the wires but you can use any method.

Step 4: Wrapping Up

Just tape down the wires and add some extra foam if need be and you're done! [o]
