Students use their knowledge of potential and kinetic energy, and explore forces and motion to place a ball into the center of a 6-foot diameter circle.
Students demonstrate their knowledge of Newton’s 1st Law of Motion as they engineer a new method for putting
out fires. As they iterate through this design challenge, they gain firsthand experience in the design process.. (Note: No real fire is used in this challenge.)
In this Design Challenge, families and friends work together to design the tallest structure that they can, using only the materials provided.
Explore the properties of magnets by designing a device that can move as far as possible using only magnets to move it, and then design a machine that will stay in motion for the greatest period of time.
