Title: Lunar Landing
Description:
Can you avoid the boulder field and land safely, just before your fuel runs out, as Neil Armstrong did in 1969? Our version of this classic video game accurately simulates the real motion of the lunar lander with the correct mass, thrust, fuel consumption rate, and lunar gravity. The real lunar lander is very hard to control
Standard(s): [S1] PHS (912) 7: Relate velocity, acceleration, and kinetic energy to mass, distance, force, and time. [S1] PHS (912) 8: Relate the law of conservation of energy to transformations of potential energy, kinetic energy, and thermal energy. [S1] PHY (912) 1: Explain linear, uniform circular, and projectile motions using one and twodimensional vectors. [S1] PHY (912) 2: Define the law of conservation of momentum. [S1] PHY (912) 3: Explain planetary motion and navigation in space in terms of Kepler's and Newton's laws. [S1] PHY (912) 4: Describe quantitative relationships for velocity, acceleration, force, work, power, potential energy, and kinetic energy.

Title: Temperature and Particle Motion
Description:
This website allows students to observe the movement of particles of an ideal gas at a variety of temperatures for 5 minutes. A histogram showing the MaxwellBoltzmann velocity distribution is shown, and the most probable velocity, mean velocity, and root mean square velocity can be calculated. Molecules of different gases can be compared by moving the graph at various velocities and times. Requires flashplayer.

Title: Water Bottle Rocket Competition
Description:
Participants will design, construct, and test a rocket made from a 2 liter plastic soda bottle. The goal is to design a rocket that will remain aloft for a maximum period of time. Every group will launch their rocket 3 times. Do not use the same rocket body (2 liter bottle) for more than two launches. The first 2 launches will be test launches. Your group must choose one or more aspects of the rocket to test. After each test launch you must analyze what hurt your rocket’s performance the most and redesign it before the next launch day. Your goal is to have the best possible rocket by the final launch day.

Title: Rubber Band Airplane Lab
Description:
You would not think that the rubber band planes that kids play with as toys today had any relevance in our history. But, in fact, the commercial airplanes that you ride on every day originated from the simple idea of the rubber band airplane. Many scientists’ ideas on aerodynamics started with a plane as simple as one powered by a rubber band. This website allows students to identify the best model of a rubber airplane by manipulating its weight and propeller speed.
