Lesson

 

Begin reading the following lesson, but also work on building the car and demonstrating to Tara what is going on:

After you have used the car for a bit, begin to think of other ways you can use the same system. For example, can we take her wooden boat and make the same?

We will be building these, come up with 3-5 things we can power. Then, make sure you finish reading the above link.

Watch the following video:

Then, on the section where he is moving the big tree, tell me what actions of physics is he using to do this.

Since most of the car is based on Newtonian physics (You are looking that up aren’t you?), Play the following game to enhance your understanding of it:

Finally, and this will be something you work on tomorrow, create your own physics themed game and code it.
