We’ve teamed up with Tinker Tank for this new PacSci DIY episode.

Tinker Tank is in partnership with the Seafair Festival for the 2018 Milk Carton Derby at Green Lake and will be building their own milk carton boat to race at the derby. For those who aren’t participating at the Milk Carton Derby this year, here is a quick tutorial of how you can make a smaller version of a milk carton boat!

What you’ll need:

  • An 8-fluid ounce milk carton (can also be of the soy or almond milk variety)
  • Tape or glue
  • Coffee filters or construction paper
  • Markers/crayons/colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard cutter
  • And whatever materials you may want to use to decorate
