The purpose of this lab is to investigate the relationship between velocity and energy with a hands on activity. Students will use a glass marble or ball bearing to serve as a falling object that impacts a surface just like an Asteroid or Meteorite. The energy released by the falling object will make a crater in the surface, just like craters on the Earth and the Moon. The falling objects kinetic energy is transferred to work when the object interacts with the surface, thus moving the surface around to make a crater.

NGSSHS-PS3-3
Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy. Emphasis is on both qualitative and quantitative evaluations of devices. Examples of devices could include Rube Goldberg devices, wind turbines, solar cells, solar ovens, and generators. Examples of constraints could include use of renewable energy forms and efficiency. Assessment for quantitative evaluations is limited to total output for a given input. Assessment is limited to devices constructed with materials provided to students.
NGSSHS-PS3-1
Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known. Emphasis is on explaining the meaning of mathematical expressions used in the model. Assessment is limited to basic algebraic expressions or computations; to systems of two or three components; and to thermal energy, kinetic energy, and/or the energies in gravitational, magnetic, or electric fields.
