Atoms Make Waves at the CNY Steamboat Competition
On Saturday, October 23rd Syracuse Academy of Science elementary, middle and high school students took to the sea in the STEM competition in 'pop-pop' or 'putt-putt' boat engineering. For this competition students could work in teams of 2-3 or individually, and were tasked with designing and constructing a miniature working steamboat powered by a single tealight candle. Teams would then present their design to the judges and are scored in 5 categories, as well as, their boat's best race time in 2 attempts.
Scoring for the CNY Steamboat Competition was based on the following criteria:
- Boat Specification
