to do list
To-Do List:

Grab a “Diving In To Science” book from the side counter.

Think back to last week when you were getting to know the whirligig product.

On a scratch piece of paper, write down a list of parts you could change or variables that you could test.

Whirligig Challenge

Criteria: To design a new Whirligig toy for the cereal box company that falls slower than their current design.

  • Constraints:
    • The whirligig template has to fit on the back of the cereal box.
    • The only materials available are the cereal box and paper clips. (assume that people will have scissors to cut out the whirligig template from the cereal box)

  • Agenda:
    • Hold a “company meeting” with your class period to discuss what you learned after using the original whirligig design. Discuss all variables and parts of the whirligig that could be changed for the final design.
    • Divide into smaller sub-groups (table partners) to design a test for one particular element of the whirligig.
    • Run small group experiments to learn what new design features should be included in the final class design. Remember to test ONLY ONE VARIABLE!
    • Write up your experiment results for the group to analyze.
    • Meet with the entire company (class period) again to agree on a new design and build the final whirligig based on each group’s recommendations.
