Girl Scouting at Home: “Think Like an Engineer” Challenges Part Three of Four

Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Outreach Program team has developed a series of “Think Like an Engineer” Challenges for the week of May 11, 2020. These activities aren’t Girl Scout level-specific. However, they would probably be best for Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, and younger Cadettes. Each activity correlates with the Think Like an Engineer Journeys as each Journey asks girls to do three design thinking activities, and that’s basically what these are.

Today’s challenge is to create your own boat using foil, water, and coins. Watch this video and see how many coins your boat can hold before it sinks. What did you learn about buoyancy and gravity?
