This week, students will learn about biomechanics of the human body. They will study the structure, form and mechanism of the arm and hand by making engineered models. They will conduct focused research and observations which will inform their Design Challenge.
Important: Students will be grouped in pairs for the entire week. They will create 2 models - a low fidelity lever and a mechanical hand, which will need to be stored in the classroom. At the end of the week, they will use their models and a pneumatic arm to conduct inquiry stations.
