5/20- Plankton Challenge: Participants are challenged to design a planktonic organism that will neither float like a cork nor sink like a stone. They are given pictures of planktonic organisms and simple materials. The best model of a planktonic organism will sink slowly or be neutrally buoyant. After designing with their team mates, students test and race their plankton in a simulated ocean
