We have been working hard in PLTW for the last 6 weeks. We have learned about different forces of erosion and things that can be done to help protect the land. Today we put our knowledge to the test! We were split into groups and each group needed to design something that would help protect houses on the side of a mountain from a landslide caused by heavy rains.
The designing process:
Ready to test:
The end results:
Our next step is now to reflect on which parts were successful and which parts were not. We will then discuss how we could have made our design better.
I hope you enjoy the snow day today! Stay safe!!!
its a great day to catch up on some reading and to practice your math facts!!!
Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year! I’m looking forward to getting back to school tomorrow!
