Save Our Soup with STEM: Engineering a Portable Flotation Device!
The town of STEM-A-Lot has decided to hold a boating class for their students. But they want to make sure that everyone is using good boat safety skills.

Your student engineers will use their skills to create a prototype of a flotation device for a can of soup. Student pages, teacher notes, a rubric, an engineering design poster, and role cards are included for this challenging problem that uses easy to find materials.
