Game Day STEM – 6/19: Splash Science
To start off the week, in one of their lessons the students investigated splash. They experimented with different variables in order to hypothesize what is necessary for divers to enter the water with minimal splash. Students generated an investigable question, developed a procedure to test their question, and analyzed the results of their experiment.
While testing their hypothesis students dropped many different weighted objects at different heights into the water to see what was different in the splash.
A question to ask your student: What was your investigable question(s)? (various answers)
