Science Club Jr: Engineer Your Own Boat (Grades 1-3) Online

Ahoy mates! Bring your creativity and building skills and join us for a fun exploration of ship construction. Participants will get everything they need to build their very own sailboat! We will discuss the basic parts of a boat and then decorate and construct our own. After construction, we can float our boats on the provided trays with a small amount of water and talk about how a sailing ship moves and stays afloat. After registering, attending this event has 2 steps: supply pickup followed by live virtual instruction.

Note: If you don't want to use water, the boats may move on a smooth surface.
