Examine and work with different materials to make boats from materials that do not float, get inspiration from plankton to make clay balls sink “more slowly”, and other seemingly impossible buoyancy challenges! Learn through experimentation about characteristics of buoyancy, as well as other characteristics of materials.


Outreach programs are designed for students in grades 3-12. The cost of one 60 minute program is $160, but multiple programs are offered at a discounted rate – $140 for each additional program.

Requests for program information or scheduling should be directed to Juliette Casselman at juliette@rimosa.org or at 401-749-2704.
