Martian Lander Project – Day 3

—  Day 1  —  Day 2  —  Day 3  —  Day 4  —  Day 5  —


Summary:

Today was the third day of the Martian Lander Project. The fun day. Testing day! Each class traveled down to the auditorium, egg in hand, and tested their landers from a height of about 5 meters. Results were… messy.

Students used the data tables in their lab report (posted below) to keep track of each group’s results. This included the cost, the fall time (recorded with a stopwatch), the end result (broken or safe), and their observations. A fun day was had by all. Except a few of the astronauts.
