The Demo-2 rocket did not launch today due to poor weather in Florida today but tomorrow we will launch paper Demo-2 rockets rain or shine.
Today, we started a Mystery Science bridge building lesson (distance learning style). We watched the video during our daily Google Meet, discussed designs in the chat, created prototypes and started building bridges out of paper. Students are inserting pictures of their bridges into a Google Slides presentation and retooling/retesting designs. So far, Mia was able to build a bridge, made with only two pieces of paper, that can hold over 700 pennies! The competition continues next week. My little engineering scholars are amazing!
On Friday we used balloons to learn about static electricity. Check out the videos below.
