Testing the Waters

The boats are being loaded onto carts to be brought to the school pool. The teams are putting their boats to the water to test buoyancy. Buoyancy is the boat’s ability to float. They decided that testing this before the competition was a nice idea, so they could make any changes or improvements. The teams wrapped the boats in plastic to make sure no water gets in and ruins the wood. If the water did get into the wood it would dry and expand.
