Catamarans!

In Science we’ve been discussing how important the concept of stability is in regards to boat design. We learned about 2-hull boats called catamarans, and today we tried our hands building them with plasticine and popsicle sticks. Students decided they wanted to try floating and sinking them as well. What fun! Tomorrow we are going to compare the stability of single hull boats to catamarans after we make them out of boxes.
