The Final Frontier
How can life be sustained on other planets? What type of technologies could be developed to colonize other planets?
Research suggest that the world’s population is increasing exponentially; therefore, the world’s resources are being exhausted rapidly and land is becoming scarce. As a result, scientists are looking into making other planets, like Mars, liveable for humans.
Welcome young NASA apprentice! It is time to plan your future! As NASA apprentices, you will research the galaxy to determine the best planet for human habitation outside of Earth. After completing your research, you are charged with designing and creating either a spaceship for travel or a space station for humans to live on that particular planet. Our future is up to you!
Force and Motion
Students will assume the role of an Engineer. Most Students at Cleveland Avenue Elementary look forward to the Fall Carnival every year. Most of the games students will play are the same games they have played for years. Therefore, many of the students will like to make use of their knowledge of force and motion to make improvements to existing games and/or design new games. As an engineer, you have the skills to build prototypes that are economical, entertaining, and innovative.
