The Brown Bag STEM Challenge- Paperclip Sailboats

By February 15th, 2019No Comments

Paper Sailboats are a wonderful way for students to easily experiment with different design components.  In this activity students work with multiple variables including the size/shape of the boat and its sail and the payload it is able to carry.

For this activity, students will work in groups to design a paper sailboat with a flat bottom that will sail on the floor, not water required!  Once students are finished designing, they will build the boat from the provided materials, test their designs with a box fan and will record the distance their boats travel.
