Today we reviewed the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) 
We discovered the difference between a "Pleasant Activity" and a scientific investigation. We set up our Science Log.  Resident scientist Leo Bellentoni
shared his science log journal with the class. The class proceeded to explore motion and the transfer of energy. We used the Cross Cutting Concepts to analyze the transfer and transformation of energy in various system (spinning washer. pendulums, ramps and rollers). We reviewed the learning cycle as it applied to our investigations. We started an investigation into energy transfer in collisions. we will finish tomorrow with our Ramps and Cars Competition.
