A visit from the Math Science Innovation Center

On Wednesday the Math Science Innovation Center visited for a lesson.  We got to investigate the power of the wind with the help of Curious George and use this renewable energy source to power a vehicle. In this lesson, students will predict how different materials and shapes catch the wind as sails and use the design process to build and test the sails of their own wind-powered vehicles.

These students' cars went 50 inches or more!  We looked at their sails to see if they had anything in common.
