From staff reports

Seventh-graders in Allison Heckler’s classes at Camden Middle School recently completed an engineering project involving water and lots of pennies.
By working in groups, the students built small rafts to determine which group’s raft could float while still supporting the weight of pennies. First place went to students Ainaya Ferebee, Dayna Meuse and Hope Marcais, whose boat remained floating even under the weight of 199 pennies.
