After designing our slingshot rockets, the Math Olympiad Team took to the courts to test out how far their rockets would fly. And fly they did, well, most of them. Our record rocket holder goes to Liam's design which slung the rocket 13.2 metres, followed by Andrew's at 12.25 metres and finally Mike's at 11.90 metres. Good effort on the design, boys!
Project-based learning allows students to control the direction and pace of their learning. Activities that promote investigation, critical thinking, and hands-on subject matter are also central to project-based learning.
These project-based lessons focus on basic principles of physics, structural, and mechanical engineering. Physical models are built from a similar set of materials that can be easily sourced online (links are provided in-lesson).
Thank you to instructables.com for sharing so many great Projects for our Math Olympiad Team.
