Biometrics

Biometrics

Introduction Today we will investigate biometrics, the use of physical characteristics to digitally identify a person. The purpose of this investigation is to explore how we can use the patterns and measurements of our bodies to create a small database of information...
Chromatography

Chromatography

Introduction Today, we will be investigating methods for separating mixtures. The purpose of this investigation is to challenge you to separate the materials using their properties. After physically separating a mixture, we will use paper chromatography and column...
Centripetal Force

Centripetal Force

Introduction Today, we will be investigating centripetal and centrifugal forces. The purpose of this investigation is to challenge you to investigate how we can use centripetal force (and its partner, centrifugal force) to pull on objects like coins and water. You...
Passive Dynamic Walkers

Passive Dynamic Walkers

Introduction Today, we will be investigating biomimetics, robotics and gravity. The purpose of this engineering challenge is to inspire you to explore how we can USE gravity (a possible source of green energy) to move a simple walking robot and how we can DEFY gravity...
