Explore Floating and Sinking with the Density Sim

Density Sim

Learn why different materials of different sizes float and sink with the new Density sim. Why do objects like wood float in water? Does it depend on size? The Density sim has a set of great teaching ideas with pre-lab, post-lab, teaching notes and sim activities to help you through your lesson plan.
