Today was the second day of the Martian Lander Project. Students spent the first portion of class building their Martian Landers. But it came with a twist. Every material had a price. For example, mattress foam cost a steep $4 million, while a cereal box cost only $1 million. So students had to design a functional lander while also keeping the cost down. The group that wins will be the group whose egg survives, but whose lander has the lowest possible cost.
After working anxiously for most of the period, students began the rough draft of their lab report (posted below). They filled in the introduction, sketched their design, and kept track of their budget. The remaining parts of the report will be filled out later.
