Boats: Learn about Buoyancy and displacement and how to float your custom boat!
Homes of the Future: Students work in teams to design and build houses both that are both creative and efficient.
Spinners: Build spinning tops and learn about balance.
Thinking outside the box: Students are challenged to build a particular object with a given set of parts.
