Overview:

 Eggbert has volunteered for the first egg-head mission to the Moon. The problem Eggbert faces is that the landing on the Moon’s surface will be very quick, and his space ship will crash. To ensure the success of this mission, your engineering team will need to design a safety restraint device that will withstand the crash.Your team has a budget of $800.00 to spend on the materials for the design. You must discuss what materials you will purchase, keeping within your budget, and record the items in a spreadsheet. You must also ALL agree on a team design. If Eggbert does not survive your first attempt, you may have time to redesign the restraint system. Your goal is to be the team that spends the least amount of money and keeps Eggbert from cracking.

4th grade - Magnet Motion
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students will explain how various forces affect the motion of an object.
Students know that a magnet pulls on all things made of iron without touching them, and that this pulling can result in motion. Students know that a magnet attracts some metals, but not all of them. Students know that a magnet has a force field and poles that determine how a metal affected by the magnet will behave within its field.

Students will make a car move using the forces of magnets to turn around, go backwards, and drive along a path without touching it.
