Day 52: Color & Projectile Practical

Physical Science: Color

Students used colored filters, felt, and light sources to find patterns in what determines what color they see. By the end of the hour, students were able to use what they saw in the lab to accurately explain their observations in the filters puzzle video.

Physics: Projectiles Practical

Students began a lab practical for projectile motion. First, we fired a projectile launcher horizontally and measured the range and starting height to determine the launch speed. Then, each group got a different distance from the launcher and calculated how high off the ground the projectile will be at that point if the launcher is fired at an angle of 45 degrees. Tomorrow, each group will place an embroidery hoop at their given distance and calculated height.
