Lego Racers

Saturday, February 27, 2016

I think I was very lazy in February!!  I usually try to post weekly to my blog, but I did not post in February, at all!!  I promise, lots of learning took place.

For Science this month, we focused on forces and motion.  Using the STEAM process, students designed and built Lego racers, that were powered by air (balloon).  They incorporated DoDEA science and CCRSM math standards into this project.   

This was a lot of fun and very educational.  Students quickly learned that their designs had to be re-engineered, in order for the balloon to stay attached while it was propelling the racer.  Even when they became frustrated, they persevered and did not give up.
