Aluminium Foil Boat

How is it possible for a boat to float on the water? Design and construct boats out of aluminum foil and see how many pennies they can hold before they sink. Try this fun experiment today!

Aluminum Foil Boat was part of our Week 4 Theme: Density & Floating. What other projects from this theme did you participate in?
