Art or science? Boatbuilding seems to be both!
The design of fishing boats has gradually developed over the centuries through collaboration between fishermen and boatbuilders. This session allows students to experiment with shape, forces and buoyancy to discover how boats float and move in the water. They will consider the characteristics of materials, the elements of a fishing vessel, and how the performance of boats has been made more efficient through history.
