Albuquerque, New Mexico - November 6, 1999
Konlin, you were in the pond water study group. Did you notice anything that you would like to report to the class?
After E’Bria completed the experiment independently, the teacher questioned her.
I noticed that when I put a wall on the bottom for protection of water which would have leaked up into the boat. I’ve got high walls so it wouldn’t leak so much. I also have like skis that I added.
The hard part of making the boat was making the platform for the pennies to go up with the walls. The flat pieces of wood were hard to connect with the circle ones because the circle ones kept rolling off when I tried to tape it. I put tin foil over most of it to keep the leaks out.
Also I have like little bumps on the corner of the wall to, like an inch from the top. It’s also getting heavy. I think I have about 3 layers of wood above the platform.
Below the platform, let’s see, maybe about four or five. The highest amount of cargo it got was 304 pennies. After 304, it tipped over. Since the pennies all got in the water the pennies always carried little drops of water back into the boat. It was also hard to get the skis to the bottom bump, the bottom piece of wood. I put it on the other wall.
