Energy and Control

I'm Changing

Description of the task:
Students are asked to design, construct and produce a short report a device that stores and transforms energy from one form to another. This report could take various forms (e.g., oral, video, written). Students simulate the electric motor using their hands to provide the input energy for this device (e.g., rotation of a pulley crank).
