Navigators - Structural Design Meeting

  • Sunday, February 25, 2018
  • 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Our second Cardboard Boat Regatta meeting is scheduled for February 25th at  2 pm at my house. Prior to the meeting please have your scouts review the handouts from the buoyancy meetup and get creative with their designs. It would be cool if the kids could create a PowerPoint presentation or poster showing their concept and include some info about the design and what special features it has.  Options are to focus on performance, or they can have a more decorative theme. The scout can stand up and describe their design concept to the troop. In the engineering world this is called a Preliminary Design Review.  Any child who wants to submit a design can do so.  The kids will ultimately decide by vote. 

After the presentation, we will teach the kids about structural design for making a strong boat. To make it interesting, this should include an activity for the kids to teach them how to build a strong structure.  They will combine these 2 elements of design and structure to begin a construction plan.
