The past week students have been working on their first true lab. The lab was helpings students understand the process of the scientific method.
Experiment: Students will use the materials listed to design a heavy launcher and will test it at one of the classroom launch sites. The launch sites will be constructed of a fishing line going from the floor to the ceiling and for your launch to be a successful one it must reach the ceiling (outer-space).
Here is what some students designs looked like.
For each class we had a competition to see who could get the most payload (paperclips) to the ceiling.
Here are the winners for each class:
1st Hour: Dylan Smith, David Zawodny, Brennan Bennett, Kaitland Hill (22 paperclips)
