Science of Sports
This unit will challenge your students to apply their scientific inquiry skills to provide evidence of the change in an object’s motion based on its force and mass. They'll apply Newton’s three laws of motion as they design, develop, and optimize a solution involving the collision of two objects. Throughout these lessons, they'll strengthen their oral communication skills in collaborative discussions, presenting and analyzing their solutions.
Pass the Ball
How well can you work together to pass a ball across a sports field? Can your team score the winning goal?
This lesson will help familiarize your students with the LEGO® Education BricQ Motion Prime Set. We recommend taking some time before the lesson to show your students how the elements are sorted, and to establish some ground rules for keeping the sets neat and organized.
What's cooler than a gymnast’s horizontal bar? A horizontal bar on a car! Let's make a gymnast-powered car.
It's time to hit the slopes, and race! What does it take to go from the bunny slope to being a downhill pro?
The referee blows the whistle... Foul! The player gets a free kick. What does it take to be able to score every time?
Can a land yacht sail into the wind? Investigate how invisible forces can change an object's motion and how this force acts from a distance.
Although a sailboat or land yacht can’t easily sail upwind, it's possible to make it happen with clever engineering. Investigate how mechanical forces can change an object's motion and how these forces can act from a distance.
