Rubber Band Powered Boats: How To Design a Bathtub Boat from Easy-To-Find, Recycled Materials

In Courageous at Home, STEM Studio by Nora Hoover

Design and build a rubber band powered paddleboat out of easy-to-find, recycled materials and check out the math and science behind why it works…or doesn’t work, which can be even more fun and interesting! Learn why Newton’s Third Law of Physics and the mathematical definition of a line are important to engineers, and do some designing, testing, and problem solving for yourself.
