Contest Starts October 1st, Ends November 18th
Professor Garfield has heard that the world’s sweetest tomatoes grow on a remote tropical island. He wants to get some of those sweet, sweet tomatoes for his lasagne sauce.
He needs a boat! We are calling all nautical engineers to design a 3D boat to help Professor Garfield out.
Professor Garfield has been analysing the situation. He has considered the weather conditions, his own weight and the amount of tomatoes he will need. He has determined the criteria his boat will need to meet:
1. The boat will need to be able to travel a distance of 26 inches (66 cm) in as short a time as possible (using a fan)
2. The boat needs to stay afloat when loaded with 5 marbles
Encourage your students to enter Professor Garfield’s Sail Away Challenge for their chance to be named ‘Professor Garfield’s Nautical Engineer of the Year’ and have their designs featured on the Professor Garfield and Makers Empire websites.
