We are learning about many of the tools scientists use and how important is to practice safety when working as a scientist. Another focus is the importance of accurate data keeping and having the ability to share this data with others.
We have started learning about simple machines including: pulleys, wedges, inclined planes, wheel and axle, and a screw. We looked at some examples: hatchet, a toy car, screwdriver, a screw. We are also learning how to design machines. We built and tested parachutes.
