Grade Levels: 4-8
Duration: Six 50-minute sessions
Objectives: Students will:
- Use their knowledge of energy transfer to complete a design challenge with given criteria and constraints.
- Compare and evaluate solutions based on how well they meet the criteria and constraints.
- Iterate design solutions based on their observations of failure points and combine the best characteristics from multiple machines into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
- Describe how elements of the design process were used to achieve an optimal design solution.
