Great hands-on way to build Cartesian divers. Do you have dried up pens in your class? Be sure to save those pen caps. This is a great, simple, inexpensive way to introduce Cartesian divers.
*1 or 2 liter bottles
*Hex nuts - Have a variety of sizes to see what fits.
Students will learn about buoyancy, density, and pressure. Students will want lots of time to explore and come up with their own ideas.
Want to explore divers further. This hands-on STEM activity will guide teachers step by step. Students will love creating their own divers.
