Buoyancy - can we keep Eggy Bond Afloat?
5 Stations - 1 mission - 60 minutes......Stations do not need to be completed in numerical order.
Station 1: Watch the videos and make notes - what can you discover about buoyancy and submarines?
Station 2: Exploring density - what happens when you add sand, water or air to a 'submarine'.
Station 3: Neutral Buoyancy - Eggy Bond?
Station 4: Glossary
Can your group produce a mini- glossary for these scientific terms?
Station 5: Can you make a boat to float the weight? Explore different shapes and sizes - what can you discover and water displacement?
Buoyancy, displacement, Archimedes, water resistance, Float/sink, mass, density
surface area, upthrust, Streamlined, Gravity, Air resistance (sails), Newtons, Scale
Submarine, surface tension.
