POPCS SmartLab Rotation 3
IQ Level 2 Mighty Machines
POP students will explore the concept of mechanical advantage. Design and measure the might of their machines!
Many vehicles are built for speed, like race cars. Other vehicles, however, need power to go up hills or pull heavy loads. For example, a semi-truck needs to be able to pull a lot of weight over long distances. Farming tractors also have to be able to pull heavy machinery over farmland.
Google Arts & Culture
POP students will explore Google Arts & Culture online. Choose a theme for their personal art exhibition and then collect art from all over the world to display in their virtual gallery! They will also create an educational resource to accompany the exhibition, such as an audio tour or exhibition catalog.
POP students are challenged to build a robot and program it to collect as much magnetic metal as possible. There is a shortage of magnetic metal in your city and the mayor has asked you to be on the lookout. The metal you collect will be given to the city to be reused in building a community project.
