This week’s FREE Science Lesson Plan is our first of two on friction – download the lesson plan here.
Develop understanding of how friction, weight and the centre of gravity affect an object’s ability to climb an incline. Investigate how changes to the tyres, the surface material and the design affect this ability. Engage pupils in a competition to see who can design a robot to climb the steepest slope.
Do you have any examples of using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education to teach Science topics? If so, and you are happy to share them, please email them to marketing@LEGOeducation.eu. We’ll publish the top ideas on our blog, and £50 of LEGO Education vouchers are available for the best idea each month.
Next week, look out for our second card on Friction.
