Y9 Buoyancy Workshop

Posted on 19th December 2018

On Tuesday 18th December we welcomed Seafarers UK to school to deliver a Buoyancy Workshop to some of our potential engineers of the future!  After finding out about the importance of engineering as a career and recapping the principals they had learnt in their Physics lessons, they were challenged to build a boat out of cardboard and aluminium foil, which had to hold as many marbles as possible.  Most groups managed an impressive 200+, but congratulations must go to Dan and Jake who built a boat which held 380 marbles… not far off the record!
