Year 4 Inquiry - May the Force be with you
Year 4 has been gripped with scientific entrepreneurship these last few weeks as students have been researching forces as part of their Integrated Unit.
Having started a drone delivery company from scratch, including engaging names and logos, our young business people were hit with some seriously negative feedback via Social Media. Tragically, their delivery service was falling short! Deliveries were received with damaged goods!
Not to be discouraged, the students began a series of force based investigations to overcome these issues. Working on friction, air resistance and gravity, a series of experiments were undertaken to resolve the issue.
From prototype parachutes to insulated baskets, the Year 4 scientists used their imagination and developed a wider understanding of the forces which surround them. Trialled, tested and modified, the students came up with a range of amazing designs and solutions.
Year 4, presented with a problem, saw only a learning opportunity. These Visible Learners explored forces of all kinds to provide some truly brilliant inventions to allow their start-up to deliver a quality product in a difficult market!
Understanding Forces? Come to Year 4 if you need any help. Or if you need an unbroken egg delivered...
