Design and Technology project - Boats

This half term in Science we are learning about forces.

We used our knowledge of air resistance and water resistance to design and build boats. 


We designed the sails for our boats based on the shape and size we thought would be best to catch the most wind. 


We designed the boat (hull) based on the shape and type we thought would be best to create the least amount of water resistance. This shape is called streamlined. 


Watch the videos below to see our boats being tested.

Science - forces




I am learning to explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity. 


We investigated if the weight of an object affects how fast it will fall to the ground. 


Check out out our videos below.
