Game Day STEM – Race Day

Game Day STEM – Race Day

The day has finally come! Our game day engineers have been working hard all week long to build a model mechanical swimmer that can outperform all others! After days of designing, troubleshooting, and testing, these mechanical swimmers were put to the ultimate test – a race against another team’s mechanical swimmer! 

Ask your camper: What was the primary difference between the movement of the swimmer in air, compared to water? (resistance was higher in water, so the swimmer needed to overcome that in order to move in water)
