Making Robots

During this project, our Second Graders were space detectives, sending ping pong ball ‘satellites’ to the edge of space.  Inside each ball, they placed different items such as gummy bears, stuffed animals and glue. After their long adventure into the stratosphere, the ping pong balls returned to Earth and were opened and examined by our class.  Using the scientific method, our students referenced their hypotheses and developed logical conclusions based on the evidence provided, which they then presented in a school assembly.
