Recycled materials used to make sailboats
Kindergarten students from Umina Beach Public School have made sailboats out of recycled materials as part of their Science Unit studies.
Students made their boats from various materials as part of their unit of study "What's it made of?"
According to principal Ms Lyn Davis, students experimented with different materials to design boats that would float for one minute holding five marbles.
The students worked together in teams and used their creative and critical thinking skills.
The boats were tested on June 28 and all boats lasted for the minute and stayed afloat.
