Fifth-grade engineers at Garden City Park School are learning about energy and collisions. Students are creating crash-prevention systems with robotic kits that need to be designed to carry an egg through a collision. In preparation, the young engineers observed elastic and inelastic energy transfer with slo-mo capture on their iPads and are simulating a crash at different points of speed. The students will continue to test and modify their designs for maximum crash prevention.
