Online Solar Structure Challenge
We are sisters who like doing projects together. Nellie is in 2nd grade and Susanna is in 7th. We wanted to make something to float around in our pool that would use solar power and spray water. We came up with the ZOBOAT! We had a couple different design ideas.We started with an egg carton boat, but thought the Gatorade bottles would hold up better. We attached the pump in a series with one solar panel and the motor in a series with the other panel. We decided that we didn’t want it to squirt harder because neither of us like getting sprayed in the face! We like our ZOBOAT!
