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.)
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.
