The second day of Cougar Camp was all about teamwork! Students worked together in building tinfoil boats which were used for a science experiment. Making a boat that floats and determining how many pennies it could hold may sound like a simple experiment, but it was full of skills that Shepherds Students will be using in their math and science classes at Kolbe Cathedral High School.
Shepherd students measured, recorded data in their Chromebooks, and created charts as they created multiple boat designs to determine which one held the most pennies. Our students were surprised to learn how many pennies could actually be held in a tinfoil boat! Most students had boats that could hold over 50 pennies before sinking.
Well done Shepherds Students and thank you so much to KCHS teacher Mr. Ed Steadham for leading such a fun STEM activity.
