Description

This engaging, hands-on, STEM mission, can be easily led remotely or done with minimal adult guidance at home. This mission consists of multiple hands-on activities where students will find out about floating and sinking through experimentation with different objects and constructing boats. Missions are science-based but also incorporate connections with math, language arts, creative arts, and social studies. Zula STEM began as the children’s science television show The Zula Patrol on PBS. Included in this mission is a link to the Zula Patrol episode “The Truder Crown Affair” which discusses floating and sinking and reinforces key ideas in this mission.
