The students have been learning about force and motion. They built their own airplanes to study friction, speed, and distance. They raced their airplanes. Next, they studied more about how angles and height play a role in the speed of motion by building their own ramps for their cars. Students were able to change the height and angle of their ramp to try to get their car to travel a farther distance. After that, the students tested flying disks outside. They tried to determine how much force they would need and what height they should throw it at to have most motion. After that, they used bouncy balls to see how much force they would need to get their ball in a cup.
