This week we will go over or review the expectations I have for class. I will be showing you how the class will run along with some classroom expectations.
This week we start the new semester long unit called Engineering Competitions. You will be participating in the first competition, which is based on the hammock. I know it seems simple, but you will see just how complicated it can be. You will be given a bag of supplies that will contain everything you need to complete this challenge. How do you think you will do against your classmates?

- Must have a short paragraph (minimum of 5 sentences) on how the mouse trap works.
After you and your partner/group of 3 present your design to the class I will be passing out some materials for us to start. We need to look at 4 things:
Once your group has made some key decisions, and/ or edited your design you can begin to build.
