IDL: Moana STEM Work

We had great fun this week during topic work designing and building our own Moana boat! We looked at Moana’s boat in the film and had a think about what it materials it was made of and what shape it is.  We conducted a bit of an experiment to see if the shape of the boat affected how well it could float.  We discovered that the boat with a larger base was able to carry the most weight! We were very successful learners by making our hypothesis and taking turns to count out the number of weights per boat and then deciding which boat was the best.
