Shake It Up Baby

Student teams are challenged to build a cost-effective base-isolation prototype that will prevent damage to a building in the event of an earthquake. In order to effectively complete the design challenge, students will investigate the causes and effects of earthquakes by researching Earth’s composition, faults, and seismic waves. Teams will then choose a design using…

Slime Time

Students compare the characteristics of simple physical and chemical changes.  Materials have many different characteristics and during the creation of their bouncy slime, students will identify these differences and be able to observe them at various states. By using the engineering process to design slime for maximum bounce students will use fractions, record measurements, and…
