Looking for a fun and engaging stem activity to help teach about buoyancy and Archimides'' Principle? Here you go. Simple activity that just requires aluminum foal, pennies (lots of pennies) and water. I recommend buying those small bins at a dollar store and filling them with water for this activity.

Students will try to design a boat out of aluminum foil that could hold the most pennies. Includes 4 follow-up/analysis questions.
