Bus Ridership Week:>!

Bus Ridership Census Week - Ride the AM bus from the same stop 5 days this week. Every student geting a parent to drop them off at school in the AM this week, and riding home or to an activity in the PM, costs us ~$700 in lost revinue across the rest of the year. Impacts sports, field trips, etc. Historically, we've spent over half a million extra dollars per year on transport. The state would pay all of it, if during our bus census this week all the students who end up using the service later on in the year . . .

ratio

Scale up single canopy penny design for an Egg Drop Lander:

1) Mass an egg and a penny
2) Scale up factorfor single canopy design = ?
(mass of 20 pennies = 1 egg)
(egg mass : penny mass = 20:1)
(egg = 20x more mass than a penny)

DESIGN CONSTRAINTS = 1)plastic garbage bags
2) string
3) masking tape
4) supplied egg as is only
5) pairs only

DESIGN CRITERIA =
1) open canopy drop off peak of gym roof
2) egg survives fall to parking lot surface uninpeeded
3) intact egg displayed to Mr.J.'s satisfaction
4) sumative assessment for meeting constraints - bonus for survival
