Foil Boat

Physics and Astronomy

Crystal Shepard

In this project, we studied the design of aluminum boats and what design will float the longest with the most amount of pennies. The class decided to find out how the design of a boat impacts the amount of weight it can hold. We learned about barges and fishing boats. We wanted to know if it would make the same difference with an aluminum boat that we created.
