How to make a popsicle stick and rubber band paddle boat

Make a popsicle stick paddle boat that’s powered with a rubber band. This DaveHax video shows us how cutting and gluing together some lollipop or popsicle sticks (and sanding them if you want it to have an extra fine finish) can make a simple boat structure. Add an elastic rubber band and keep twisting its attached paddle to see the boat take off in the water.

There’s more DIY science and craft videos on this site, including soap-powered boats, how to make a Popsicle Stick Chain Reaction, and how to make Leonardo da Vinci’s self-supporting bridge.
