We're making waves today! Students in Mrs. Smith's Career Strategies class built and tested their boats. Students were given 2 plastic cups, 10 plastic straws, 12" of plastic wrap, and 12" of duct tape to create their boats. Boats were tested using 1/2" washers for weight. All boats held 20 washers before sinking!
