Academy Boat Float

Academy of Our Lady Physics students designed a pontoon boat made from unwaxed cardboard secured with duct tape at the seams.  The boat had to traverse a swimming pool in the least amount of time without sinking.  The students determined the weight of the boat and the weight of the load (the students) in constructing their boat.
