In the Penny Boat Lab, we made a boat to hold pennies in water. First, we collected materials we needed which were scissors, a ruler, water, pennies, aluminum foil, a triple beam balance and a container. Using the ruler, we measured the foil 15cm by 15cm, then cut excess pieces. Next, we had to fold the foil into a “boat”. After, we measured the mass of our boat using the triple beam balance. On our paper we predicted the amount of pennies that could fit in the boat before it sank. We tested the boat in the water and added pennies one by one. We then calculated the mass of pennies that fit in the boat and the density of it.

The purpose of this Lab was to make a boat that holds as many pennies as possible and understand how to calculate
