7th Graders Design STEAM-Powered Recycled Cars

On Tuesday, May 22nd, the 7th Graders began testing their models to meet the design challenge issued by their STEM teacher, Mrs. Ang: to design a car out of recyclable materials that had to move five meters by itself.

The students studied Newton’s three laws to learn about the forces that were acting on the cars as well as the energy transformation that would occur in their “motors”. Many of the students’ design tests went well and they all had fun applying their understanding.
