Naval architecture and marine engineering is the design of floating vessels and all the parts that together make up the boat or ship. Thislab provides students with the opportunity to build, test and evaluate hull designs. Students will explore buoyancy, stability and hydrodynamics comparing flat bottom and V-bottom hulls.
Students can design their own display board (like sample above) for use in the classroom or a S.T.E.M. fair with the reusable corrugated plastic board that is included.
