Novel Engineering – W

December 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

(Grades 6-12)

Novel Engineering combines engineering with literacy! You will be tasked with designing a creative solution for a problem presented in a book. We will provide the problem and supplies, you provide the skills and imagination!

This month’s Novel Engineering features the novel Ship Breaker. In this futuristic world, Nailer searches for copper wiring from grounded oil tankers for a living. He was climbing through a duct doing his job, when suddenly the duct dropped out from under him. Nailer hit liquid and blackness swallowed him with barely a ripple.

You see Nailer in the oil, and you decide it is up to you to save him! Can you design a boat/raft that can float in oil to save Nailer’s life?
