The Great Anchor Challenge
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Students work in groups of 2 to create an anchor out of a collection of materials provided by the teacher. Students will test their anchors in an aquarium periodically to determine if their anchor has too much surface area, thus making it buoyant, or if the materials are combined in a way that is denser than the water causing the anchor to sink. The ultimate goal is to balance the forces being applied to the boat.  The anchor is attached to a 3d printed boat, or a boat of the teacher's choosing. A fan is directed at the boat after the anchor has been attached and dropped in the water. In addition to the wind, the teacher will create waves by tapping the side of the tank. Students will observe if the anchor holds under these circumstances or not. Ultimately, they will try to prevent the boat from moving at all. Distance traveled for each test will be taken by a meter stick or tape measure fixed to the side of the tank. Students will strive to keep the boat frozen at 0 centimeters.

Students will design their own spacecraft to investigate how different atmospheric densities will affect the speed of descent through the atmosphere (modeled using glycerol). Students will drop their spacecraft models down through the "atmosphere" and time how long it takes to land on the surface.

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students will investigate motion and speed of toy cars. Observations and predictions of various variables (type, size of toy) will be made with other student groups. Critical thinking will be applied while discussing the reliability of the investigation. Speed, constant speed, average speed, and acceleration will be investigated and recorded using data graphs.

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students will work in small groups to experience friction in action as they investigate the movement of toy cars. Students use the scientific process to hypothesize and then test how toy cars travel down ramps using differing variables such as mass and types of materials. They also review and share their results with the class.

Measuring the Speed of Go-Carts
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, students will make go-carts and measure the speed, then change different factors of the experiment and see how the speed changes. In day 1, students will design and build a cart based on a specified set of materials, and then complete several trials to test the cart by rolling it down a ramp. Through discussion and journaling students will share their designs and compare the speeds of carts. In day 2, students will experiment with ways to increase or decrease the speed of their cart.
