Caleb, Skylar and I made this boat out of Popsicle sticks hot glue and rubber bands. We tested it in the school pool.

We used 48 out of 50 sticks and 2 out of 5 rubber bands.

We made a triangle at the front so it would glide through the water.

Our boat traveled 130cm, it didn't turnout how we wanted it.

Next time I would Put more rubber bands on the motors.

 After it had been in the water it fell to bits it was quite funny

Popsicle Stick Tower

Goal Post Tower

Mark Seager, Liam McPherson.
Height : 720mm

Our tower passed the success criteria, it was able to hold 1 kg, withstand fan speed and it had a working elevator.
Next time, if we were to change something, we would make it taller.

I think we worked well as a group.
