Units included with this Open Author resource:

The Collision Project
Learning goals:
I can describe and identify forces that affect motion on Earth., I can explain and apply examples of Newton’s Laws of Motion., I can apply balanced and unbalanced forces., I can work through the design cycle to construct and implement a solution that meets design criteria and constraints., I can design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.

Car Stopping Devices


This project is a makerspace focused STEM project. Students build a device that will stop a car that is attempting to break through a toll booth, border crossing, or other gate. Students build a model of their device and use an RC car to test it out.
