Will it or won't it?

Our local high school physics class had to test their knowledge by building a boat to carry a person across the pool. After carefully engineering their boats and building it out of what looked like sticks and paper, they took the final test to see if it will float or not.
First you have to have a little help from your teammates to get into the boat.

Then you paddle very carefully across the pool.

And hope it gets you to the other end. This one made it!

She almost did. She was about halfway across before going under.
This one got about halfway across too.

And there is why it sank!

This one didn't have a chance!
Thanks, Pam, for taking me to the pool for this fun outing! Tomorrow we get to see what happens to the ones who did make it across.
