Explore the effectiveness of levers and cams in microgravity. Following the scientific method, students will gather research, conduct experiments and record their findings. Students will then watch as crew on board the International Space Station (ISS) complete identical experiments and provide additional data students will use to prove their hypothesis.
Students are then challenged, based on what they have learned, to solve problems relating to the effectiveness of the hammer in space. Topics covered include force, motion, cams, levers and friction.
