We are at the halfway point in our year! We have completed a few engineering projects and social/emotional studies about ourselves and our personality types. We received an engineering box from the James Dyson Foundation and were able to disassemble and reassemble a vacuum cleaner while talking about the physics of the machine. The newspaper came to interview us while we completed our project! We took the True Color Personality quiz to see how our personality works with others. We will now begin independent studies.
Marble Run Team 1
The task: Use a cardboard box, cardboard strips, and tape to create a marble run course. The marble needed to take 60 seconds to complete the journey. This team turned the cardboard strips into cardboard tubes for the marble to roll down.
Marble Run Team 2
Same task. This team made planks for the marble to roll across. They utilized tape in strategic places to slow the momentum of the marble.
