We know that the Nile River was used as a main supply route for supplies and goods for the people of Egypt. Create a floating boat that will be able to hold a high number of supplies/goods “beans” without sinking.

  • Straws 

  • Paper 

  • Foil 

  • Plastic Cups 

  • Styrofoam  

  • Tape 

  • String 


  • Dry Beans (supplies)
