Crashing Into Energy Lessons

Crashing Into Energy Lessons photo thumbnail164634

Fourth graders at Tackan Elementary School and Mills Pond Elementary School are crashing into their Project Lead the Way lesson on energy transfers. In a hands-on experiment, the students investigated elastic and inelastic collisions to learn how energy was transferred during a collision. Using two ramps and working in groups, the students tested collisions between two cars at different heights and recorded their results during the different trials.
