Description

Next Generation Science Standards

Pop Fly Challenge:  Invent a way to send a ping-pong ball flying high enough to catch it. Take some paint stirrers, a wooden spool, and tape. Now, add your foot.

Guide groups of students through the process of engineering a device that launches a ball high enough so you can catch it using duct-tape, paint stirrers, a ping-pong ball, a wooden block or spool, and paper cups.

 

Key Questions

I would like the volunteer to briefly explain:

  • What do you do?
    What excites you about your work/why do you love about your job?

I would also like the volunteer to ask the students questions like:

  • Why do you think some designs worked better than others? 
  • What did you change from your first design to your second?
  • How do levers work? (converting a little effort into a lot of force.)

 

 

 

 




Expected Outcomes

 

I would like the industry expert to advise students on their group projects.
