News from Dynamic Design

Dynamic Design Students have been busy getting the outdoor classroom ready!

"Energy Matters" Physical Science Culminating Event

To learn about Newton's Laws of Motion, Dynamic Design students constructed a "car seat" out of a milk carton to keep a raw egg safe.  After drafting and designing, with a budget of $20 "Dynamic Dollars" and a supply list, students were able to purchase a variety of materials such as rubber bands, cotton balls, and newspaper, along with pricey $5 "secret items" (which included marshmallows, peanut butter, and Jell-O!)  The car seats were launched with increased force from increased distances until only 3 eggs remained intact after several wall-crash trials.
Congratulations to Desiree, Cassie B., and Avery!  Thanks to the parents who came to watch and served as egg launchers!
