The last boat to be tested was the Secret Potion Boat. The members of the boat were: Sophia, Amina and Dina. This boat was a failure. Amina tells us why it probably did not work,” I think it didn’t work because we didn’t get to put the washers on and the bottle was too big.” The boat was made of a sports bottle, vinegar and baking soda and two balloons. First you attach the balloons to the sports bottle. Then you mix the vinegar and the soda, then quickly put the top in the water. The chemicals should react and push the boat forward. Now Dina explains us how the groups will make the boat more successful: “Maybe we could put more washers on the top of the bottle.”
Everyone in our class enjoyed making the boats, Isaac explains us why he enjoyed making the boat,” I did enjoy making the boat because, I like making things and I thought the balloons project was really fun for me and my team.” The winner of the boat race was the Rubber Band Boat, second place was the Balloon Boat and last was the Secret Potion Boat.
