What does it take to make a boat float? Is it the materials, the construction, or plain luck? Enter the ultimate boat building challenge and see if your ship has what it takes to sail the high seas.

Grab your favorite pirate hat and dive in to this exciting STEM challenge! Use recycled materials and your imagination to create a watertight ship that’s ready to set sail. Race against friends, or test the waters to see how much cargo your ship can carry! Do whatever floats your boat at this program!
