Unofficial winners with 17 batteries!

]]>This underground support structure held the record at 47cm for most of the class.

But with a ten second count down ticking, this group stablized their "tee pee" style tower for a winning 49cm tall tower!

]]>The students tried a few methods and discovered the highly effective cylinder supports. While 12 inches was the official record, some creative students (cheaters) built the masterpiece below.

]]>In a cross curricular lesson of Science and Algebra, students created balloon powered cars and then calculated it's speed or "slope". We then paired up the cars and the students had to use the equations they created for their car to calculate the exact point when the two cars would pass each other or collide (intersection point). In their Science class, the students focused on the laws of energy and motion. Enjoy.

When I was in school my favorite way to study was to rewrite all my notes, in a well organized one sheet of paper. I would then have that sheet of paper memorized. Another fun way to study was to get together with friends. We would talk about what we each thought was important to know and then take turns asking each other questions.
