Products In Motion
In this project, students study force, motion and energy and the application of these scientific principles through simple machines. Students explore the differences between potential and kinetic energy, various sources of energy, the conversion and transfer of energy in a system/circuit and real world applications. Student learning culminates in the development of a machine that moves an object (product) from one point to another. Additionally, students learn about sustainable technology and renewable energy resources and investigate how they might utilize these in their design.
Students will explore a different country. Students will become familiar with the culture, geography, and landmarks that are significant in that country. Students will create a trip to the country including guidebooks, maps, and important language phrases. Students will create a travel guidebook to explore the various places to visit and describe the aspects of that country.
