Discovery Museum Field Trip

Last Friday our class visited the Discovery Museum in Acton! We had a blast exploring the various exhibits. The children participated in a Sink and Float Design Challenge. They had to work in small groups to design a "boat" that would be able to carry their "treasure" and various supplies safely over a body of water. First they were given different materials to test in water. After that they had to use this new knowledge to build their structure. Some groups were more successful than others but they all persevered and did a great job applying what they learned to problem solve. Below are some pictures from our trip!
