Badge Journey

iBuild Academy will be hosting this special event for Junior Girl Scouts. Participants will be given the opportunity to work on the requirements to earn the Paddle Boat Design Challenge badge. 


People have been traveling by water for thousands of years. At first, boats, such as canoes, were powered by people. Later, boats were built to use other forms of energy to move, like catching wind in a sail.


While earning this badge, you’ll explore how paddle boats work and use the Design Thinking Process to engineer your own paddle boat.



1.       Explore how paddle boats work

2.       Design and build a rubber band-powered paddle boat

3.       Test your rubber band-powered paddle boat

4.       Analyze and share your results

5.       Brainstorm ways to improve your design


When I’ve earned this badge, I will know how to build and test a paddle boat and understand buoyancy, potential energy, and kinetic energy.
