It's OK to not know, but it's NOT OK to not try.
LEQ: How far can you propel an army man forward using a launcher?
Design Cycle Quadrants: Design, Create, and Evaluate
Thomas Twist: Our group could only use $10 at the Challenge Store to buy supplies.
Learner Profile Attributes: Knowledgeable and Thinker because we had to use our knowledge of science and math to keep changing our design to make the launcher go further
Strengths: We were successful in completing the challenge using the least amount of materials
Weakness: Our first design did not work the way that we thought and had to create 3 different designs
Result of Challenge: All of the teams were successful in launching the army man forward! The longest launcher in 8th period went about 27 feet.
