Day 99: Their own “Barbie Bungee”

C360_2013-02-25-10-38-54

No it's not Barbie Bungee but it's similar because it's a science project.  They've been wanting to try float an object with helium.  We are going to weigh smaller objects to try to predict how many balloons will be necessary to float their bigger chosen objects.  Yesterday I had them start by discussing what their objective for this project was…..they are pretty excited about this!  This makes me think how awesome it would be to collaborate with a science class and teach math through science projects.  My friend Frank Nochese should move to Hawaii and we could have a BLAST!
