Engineering Physics – a couple of groups are almost ready to test out their cart launchers. The competition was supposed to be today but students just weren’t ready. I’ve had some problems with this class/project. It was very hard to get kids started with their projects. While I encouraged them to do design work on paper or bring materials into class, not much happened for a couple of weeks. They felt that they had too much homework for their academic courses, which I agree was probably true and problem. Finally kids started bringing their materials to class and things moved a lot faster. We will wrap up this project next week and then move onto a project that won’t require any materials or work outside of the classroom.
