Grade 7/8 Science: Crane Building
Posted on November 4th, 2016
Grade 7 science students are in the midst of finishing their first science unit on the Mix and Flow of Matter. During the unit, students learned about the effects of pressure on fluids. In particular, students learned about hydraulics and pneumatic systems. They were challenged with the task of creating a crane that could lift and move a pop can onto a platform, using only items they had at home. Students did an amazing job with this task and problem solved their way through the whole process, even when they had to make modifications. We have a very creative group. Great job! It was a lot of fun!
