Rating
0.0 stars

In this seminar you will read closely and analyze the structure of ATP- Adenosine Triphosphate. You will curate your own  information about the importance of ATP in a cell by listening and reading text as to what the experts have to say.  By modeling the function of ATP in an inquiry lab you can accurately identify the  various levels of cellular work done by Adenosine Triphosphate.StandardsBIO.A.3.1.1 Describe the fundamental roles of plastids (e.g., chloroplasts) and mitochondria in energy transformations.BIO.A.3.2.1 Compare and contrast the basic transformation of energy during photosynthesis and cellular respiration.BIO.A.3.2.2 Describe the role of ATP in biochemical reactions

Rating
0.0 stars

Once students demonstrate proficiency in VEX Robotics, it is time for the application of knowledge in Real World Situations.

Students will learn Automated Straightening, Studying Variables in code, how to run true/false statements, setting parameters in a sonar function, implementing functions with parameters in programs, and how to encapsulate discrete behaviors in functions.

Students then go on to work on straightening statements using if/then, how to change values which the Vex Sonar Sensor measures in, and explore values associated with the sonar sensor when it receives an echo and when it does not.

Does It Cut It? Understanding Wind Turbine Blade Performance
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students gain an understanding of the factors that affect wind turbine operation. Following the steps of the engineering design process, engineering teams use simple materials (cardboard and wooden dowels) to build and test their own turbine blade prototypes with the objective of maximizing electrical power output for a hypothetical situation—helping scientists power their electrical devices while doing research on a remote island. Teams explore how blade size, shape, weight and rotation interact to achieve maximal performance, and relate the power generated to energy consumed on a scale that is relevant to them in daily life. A PowerPoint® presentation, worksheet and post-activity test are provided.

Students are going to be working in an Engineering Design team to create a car using K’Nex pieces. They will work through 3 iterations of design in a goal to have their car travel 600 CM. They will use a ramp (defined in the lesson) to have their car gain momentum. They will also create a 3D Printed wheel to be attached to their design and determine if this has improved their design.
