MindSET: Boat Maker

Event Type: MindSET

The program is designed around learn-design-build-test modules. The modules cover topics in physics, chemistry, and mathematics, along with their engineering applications such as bridges, circuits, and water rockets. The design-build activities involve groups of 4–5 school students working together with 2–3 college students. This structure provides a fun-filled and creative learning experience for school students, and also creates opportunities for college students to share their experience with learning engineering.
Students were taught to construct a boat with the materials given to hold the most weight before sinking. They learned about buoyancy, density, and forces that keep the boat on the water.
