Incorporate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics into solving fun and engaging challenges involving physics. Students develop their best approach to solve these challenges and learn about important topics in the process. Students engineer a soda can magnet, explore propellers to create cars and boats powered by them, engineer the strongest bridge, and much more while learning about how and why everything works the way it does.
Outside Classwork: Students are asked to perform write-ups about their activities to show what they have learned. Write-ups should take about 30 minutes-1 hour to complete per week.
