Category: 21. Will It Float?
Several years ago, Dave Kaleta challenged his students to build floating creations.
Now, the challenge is passed on to you. Build the biggest and/or best looking floating creation you can manage. You must provide a picture of the object maintaining position above the water line, aka floating.

Island on white for presentation purposes.
The inside of the island is hollow, so it captures the outside air, as well as the PaB cups and their sealed air. So all I had to do was plop the island down, and tadaa! Floating island!
Island in action.
I had loads of fun building this one. It was hard enough trying to find something to build that could be feasible for this category, but making it float was the cherry on top.
As you can see in the video, the island itself is very stable.
Just to test it, I left it in the Rubbermaid bucket for about half an hour, and lo and behold, when I went to check on it, it was still floating!
