Why do ships float? The science of density and buoyancy comes alive with demonstrations and hands-on activities using a water tank in the L.I. Science Center's online STEM class March 25.

Kids will learn about buoyancy — the science of staying afloat — in a free online class being offered by the Long Island Science Center on Wednesday.

The class will be a live, interactive instructor-led program where students will be able to ask questions, get answers, and follow along with the experiment.

Why do ships float? Density and buoyancy come alive with demonstrations and hands-on activities using a water tank. Students experiment with different solids and liquids for a concrete understanding of density.

The class will be held on Wednesday from 1 to 1:45 p.m.
