Webinar on the Mathematics of Ships

The Webinar on the Mathematics of Ships took place on Wednesday, September 9th, 2020 from 7 pm until 8 pm, with Julio Garcia, member of IEEE Panama Section, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker did two experiments: one on surface tension and the other on floatability. Julio Garcia also explained Archimedes’ Principle, reviewed a few formulas to calculate volume and described how submarines work. Finally, the speaker invited the participants to make their own ship with clay or whichever material they would prefer. This virtual event was co-organized with IEEE Panama Section.
