Flat Out Afloat

Teams put the laws of buoyancy and creative problem solving to the test in the world’s most innovative and exciting build-your-boat concept. They put together what would be very unlikely building materials to build a person-powered boat that can float and race around a designated course.

We start the experience with each team receiving specialized materials, tools, blueprints, and boat building designs. Teams usually start with surprise that the materials we have given them can create a boat that floats and then finish with pride and excitement when their boat does more than they thought it could. There are points to be won for the teams with the boat with the most personality, the most creative flag, that involve everyone or collaborate with other teams and the fastest.

Flat Out Afloat is a great “hands-on” activity for teams to develop confidence and self-belief. And explore their creative problem-solving skills.
