This unusual boat uses polystyrene floats to support a deck and a solar-powered motor.
Powered by a small electric motor driving a propeller, it moves at surprisingly high speeds over water and even a smooth, slippery surface.
This boat is solar powered which either requires direct sunlight or a suitable artificial light source.
The solar panel can be mounted at various angles to allow for direction of sunlight and associated experiments.
Three different types of propeller are provided in order to conduct other airflow and torque experiments.
