In this episode of the series “Dr. Dad’s PH3” from 1994, Dr. Dad teaches Olivia and her friends about buoyancy and Archimedes’ principle. They perform experiments to see how the shape of an object affects the amount of water it displaces and how the weight of that water helps to hold the object up. Dr. Dad also meets with two students at the University of New Orleans, who discuss their design of a concrete canoe.
