Design and modeling- This week students working om making their puzzle cubes. Students have to design their puzzle cube first out of linking blocks and then use their prior knowledge of multi-view and isometric drawings to draw their 5 pieces. This project is due next Wednesday so we can test them in class.
STEM- This week students finished making their CO2 dragster and we raced them Thursday to see whose design would be the fastest down the track. The fastest time was .917 Seconds. Ask you student about their dragster and how it performed. We will be doing this project again starting today 12/6 so students can redesign and improve on their ideas.
Robotics- Students were challenged to redesign their dragster to be as light as possible this time to see if that would help increase speed when traveling 20 feet.
