Forces - Floating and Sinking

In Science lessons we have been exploring Forces, with a particular focus upon floating and sinking.  We carried out a range of experiments which helped us to understand upthrust and displacement.  We were then set the task to design and build our own boats.  These boats would then be tested to see if they were waterproof and how much weight they could hold before they sank.  Here are some photographs of our final boats and the experiments.
