Final Badge for Steady Boat data

You can upload one more table or graph of your data here. Think about how your data has changed since you started. Do you collect new types of data? Do you think someone else could read your data and know what it means? Engineers use data to show why they make changes. You can collect and use data for all types of designs!

[wordpress_file_upload uploadtitle=”Upload your picture here.” createpath=”true” duplicatespolicy=”maintain both” uploadpath=”%userid%/%pageid%” uniquepattern=”datetimestamp” uploadpatterns=”*.jpg,*.jpeg,*.zip,*.m4a,*.mp3,*.mp4,*.wav,*.ogg,*.wma,*.ape,*.aiff,*.m4b,*.m4p *.heic, *.mpeg, *.png, *.gif, *.bmp” maxsize=”2248” forcefilename=”true” notifyrecipients=”mbriscoe@myedme.com” notifymessage=”Image file uploaded.”][/wordpress_file_upload]

Think about what worked well for getting this data. You can use those strategies again for the next challenge!

Final Badge for Steady Boat

Share one more picture of your testing. This final picture should highlight some of the changes you made since your first design. Are you using different objects to test? If so, show how your boat looks with different amounts of weight. We want to see how much problem solving you have been doing!!

[wordpress_file_upload uploadtitle=”Upload your picture here.” createpath=”true” duplicatespolicy=”maintain both” uploadpath=”%userid%/%pageid%” uniquepattern=”datetimestamp” uploadpatterns=”*.jpg,*.jpeg,*.zip,*.m4a,*.mp3,*.mp4,*.wav,*.ogg,*.wma,*.ape,*.aiff,*.m4b,*.m4p *.heic, *.mpeg, *.png, *.gif, *.bmp” maxsize=”2248” forcefilename=”true” notifyrecipients=”mbriscoe@myedme.com” notifymessage=”Image file uploaded.”][/wordpress_file_upload]

By now, we hope you are having fun changing and testing your boat. Keep going forward! If you want to send us more pictures, you can tag us on Facebook, connect on Instagram, or simply upload another picture on this website.

Thanks for working so hard! You are engineering very well. Time for one more data badge.

Final Badge for Steady Boat planning sketch

This is the last time you can earn a Planning Badge, but please don’t let that stop you from making more designs!! You could make designs to hold a whole family of water bottles. We love to see how far you can push these challenges!

[wordpress_file_upload uploadtitle=”Upload your picture here.” createpath=”true” duplicatespolicy=”maintain both” uploadpath=”%userid%/%pageid%” uniquepattern=”datetimestamp” uploadpatterns=”*.jpg,*.jpeg,*.zip,*.m4a,*.mp3,*.mp4,*.wav,*.ogg,*.wma,*.ape,*.aiff,*.m4b,*.m4p *.heic, *.mpeg, *.png, *.gif, *.bmp” maxsize=”2248” forcefilename=”true” notifyrecipients=”mbriscoe@myedme.com” notifymessage=”Image file uploaded.”][/wordpress_file_upload]

We hope it has become easier and easier to continue designing solutions. We hope your designs became clearer and more useful!

Congratulations on engineering a Steady Boat!!

Great work completing your Strong Boat engineering challenge!! Click here to earn 150 brainpowers for your successful building adventure.

Think about everything you did! There were successes, problems, solutions (and then more problems!). You kept working hard and got to the end. Nicely done!

We will be updating this page with successful boats. Here are some of our favorites so far! If you want your here, scroll to the bottom and upload a picture of your Tall Boat.

[wordpress_file_upload uploadtitle=”Upload your picture here.” createpath=”true” duplicatespolicy=”maintain both” uploadpath=”%userid%/%pageid%” uniquepattern=”datetimestamp” uploadpatterns=”*.jpg,*.jpeg,*.zip,*.m4a,*.mp3,*.mp4,*.wav,*.ogg,*.wma,*.ape,*.aiff,*.m4b,*.m4p *.heic, *.mpeg, *.png, *.gif, *.bmp” maxsize=”2248” forcefilename=”true” notifyrecipients=”mbriscoe@myedme.com” notifymessage=”Image file uploaded.”][/wordpress_file_upload]

Describe how you will test your ship’s ability to hold one water bottle

Describe the steps that you will use to test your solution. It may be only two steps, or you could describe how you will continue to improve your boat. You may want to use light things to start testing your boat’s stability.

Either way, you will earn 15 points for each test of your Stable Boat designs. This badge can be earned 3 times for 3 different tests.

Steady Boat!! An initial plan for a steady boat that in heavy seas

Engineers draw plans to help them think. Upload a picture of a drawing you used to plan your boat that can hold an empty water bottle in heavy ways. Empty bottles are like people-very wobbly! Your boat will need to be stable. Stable boats are very balanced, so they don’t lean too much. What shapes do you think are balanced? What will make YOUR boat stable?

Upload your first Stable Boat design here.

[wordpress_file_upload uploadtitle=”Upload your picture here.” createpath=”true” duplicatespolicy=”maintain both” uploadpath=”%userid%/%pageid%” uniquepattern=”datetimestamp” uploadpatterns=”*.jpg,*.jpeg,*.zip,*.m4a,*.mp3,*.mp4,*.wav,*.ogg,*.wma,*.ape,*.aiff,*.m4b,*.m4p *.heic, *.mpeg, *.png, *.gif, *.bmp” maxsize=”2248” forcefilename=”true” notifyrecipients=”mbriscoe@myedme.com” notifymessage=”Image file uploaded.”][/wordpress_file_upload]

(You can receive up to three 20-point badges for your Stable Boat plans. You must go through the process 3 times to receive all 3 badges.)

After you complete this step move on to Testing Your Ship!

Take a picture of your second Steady Boat test

Upload a picture showing how you are testing your Stong Boat. Be sure your picture shows changes you made in your boat design.

[wordpress_file_upload uploadtitle=”Upload your picture here.” createpath=”true” duplicatespolicy=”maintain both” uploadpath=”%userid%/%pageid%” uniquepattern=”datetimestamp” uploadpatterns=”*.jpg,*.jpeg,*.zip,*.m4a,*.mp3,*.mp4,*.wav,*.ogg,*.wma,*.ape,*.aiff,*.m4b,*.m4p *.heic, *.mpeg, *.png, *.gif, *.bmp” maxsize=”2248” forcefilename=”true” notifyrecipients=”mbriscoe@myedme.com” notifymessage=”Image file uploaded.”][/wordpress_file_upload]

We may share your boat picture with other people if we think that they can learn from your process or your design. Your boat may be famous!!
