Buoyancy Engineering Design Challenge

Buoyancy Engineering Design Challenge
Product Description
This handout provides the instructions and background information for this Engineering Design Challenge where students design and build something that achieves neutral buoyancy in a tank of water. The handout includes a definition of the terms neutral buoyancy and density. This activity can supplement a unit or lesson on density or buoyancy and could even be related to real-life scenarios such as submarine design or fish anatomy (swim bladders).

This activity requires access to a tank (I used an empty fish tank) and various materials such as plastic bottles, sand, corn kernels, soda, etc. This is a great, hands-on learning experience for children in grades 6-12.
