LCS WINS "FLOAT YOUR BOAT" COMPETITION
LCS hosted this years "Float Your Boat" competition organized by the Environment 360 NGO that specializes in recycling and environmental education programs.
Students from our MYP physics 10 class built boats out of recycled plastic bottles and raced against four other international schools from Accra. The aim of the competition was to ultimately raise awareness about the need to recycle plastic waste and minimize pollution on our coastline and Ocean.
The students applied their knowledge of physics to design boats that would support two passengers and raced up and down the pool. It was impressive to see the variety of designs including realistic replicas of canoes.
