Craters Lab Day #1

Today, students put their procedures from yesterday into action. Groups simulated the creation of impact craters on a lunar-like surface. Their tests covered a variety of impact speeds, asteroids sizes, and trajectories. And after creating, measuring, and documenting their craters, the students then began to compare them to photographs of the moon.

We will finish our labs on Monday. Each group of two students will submit a full lab report that includes six sections: goal, hypothesis, materials, procedure, results, and conclusion. The report will be due at the beginning of class on Tuesday.
