Move Me

Move Me incorporates learning outcomes from technology, science and mathematics, as well as meeting the cross curricular capability of sustainability. In this unit, students design, develop and build products that focus on developing their knowledge of fluid mediums, environmental factors, forces, scale diagrams, speed/ velocity, mass/volume/capacity, data collection and it’s representation, sustainable energy sources, portfolio development and the design process. Students complete three projects: Design and build a paper plane that can travel a distance of 20 metres, design and build a paper boat that can stay afloat on water holding a mass of 30g, design and build a mode of transport which can hold a mass of 30g and travel at a minimum of one metre, using a renewable energy source.
