Paddle Boat

Introducing the Motor Paddle Boat 

Ever been in a pedal boat? Paddle boats have pedals that you push with your feet similar to a bike which are connected to the paddles located under the boat that are immersed in the water. In this kit, the paddles are visible in the center of the boat and are powered by a hobby motor. 

The physics behind paddles work on the same principle as Newton's third law of motion.  For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. 

The speed and directional accuracy depend a great deal on the paddles. Some factors are: how even you've positioned the paddles, length of paddles, width of paddles, shape of paddles etc. This way you can show how modifying the paddle can give you various results and why. 

The instructions link below will show you how to assemble the kit but you can modify it after you get an idea of how it works. There is also a link at the bottom of the instructions page showing a different model paddle boat. Be innovative, invent!
