Today the students were to combine exactly 20 Lego bricks together so that when dropped from a defined height they do not break apart. Students discovered that larger,flatter builds withstood the drop test easiest. This was because the force was distributed over a large area making the overall force at each point in the design less. Here is a picture of how students performed the drop test and another picture of our competitors that were left before the final elimination drop test.
Today they made their name out of legos. First in 2D then in 3D. Next week there will be a Lego competition. Here are some pictures from Monday, Oct 4.
