CAPSULE e Unique Lea n o t s rni Cap ng Expe rience What When How First week or two Simple group engineering Introduction of school projects (straw towers, st (beginning of 1 to EDP paper airplanes, etc.) quarter) Current Status READY After unit on Kinematics – end “Free Fall / of first month of Projectile” the semester Ride Design (end of 1st quarter) Students will design a ride incorporating the concepts Outlined – need of projectiles and free fall. to make student These designs will be posterresources based only and students will present their designs. After unit on Circular Motion – end of 2nd month of semester (beginning of 2nd quarter) Students will design a ride incorporating the concepts Outlined – need of circular motion (ex. to make student swings, ferris wheel, pirate resources & ship, etc.). These designs gather materials will be modeled with simple prototypes and presented. “Circular” Ride Need to request Students will follow the EDP materials from to design and build roller $500 NSF grant During energy coasters. They will use unit- completing various materials to design, Capstone – Appropriate set project build, and then redesign Roller up of excel throughout final their prototypes. Students Coaster spreadsheets month of will need to use all of the Design semester (end of concepts they’ve learned in Dates outlined nd the course, with a focus on 2 quarter) need to make the latest topic (energy student resources conservation).
