Science: Race a Speedboat

Water tension Experiment
  • Coloured card
  • Washing up liquid
  • Pencil or sharpie
  • Scissors
  • Large container of water.

I think the boat will stay in-tact because the dishwasher liquid might be like a boost so it reaches the other end and then the boat might sink at the end.

When I placed my boat into the water and placed my finger in there with the liquid, it glided.

I think it happened because paper is really light.

Metal clip Experiment
  • Large container of water.
  • Metal paperclip.

Because it is made out of metal, it will sink.

After a few tries, the metal clip finally floated.


It floated because if you gently place it down, the water’s surface won’t break causing the metal clip to float.
